ABOUT

Hi, I’m Houra Amin, an instructional designer with two master's degrees; one in Instructional Systems and Learning Technologies, and another in Teaching English as a Second Language, plus more than 15 years of experience in education. My education background and industry experience have provided me with extensive knowledge and expertise to design e-learning that has a measurable impact on organisations.

All individuals are -in one way or another- engaged in the process of learning new information or skills whether it be simple or complex. Seymour Papert (2002) believes that in the past we needed “graduates who knew how to do what they were taught but today we need graduates who know how to do what they were NOT taught.” This vision about how the changing world has changed the concept of education has formed my mission to develop engaging learning environments that prepare the learners to transfer their learning to the real world.
