My name is Yenny and I’m an instructional designer based in Switzerland. I’ve been working in Education for many years, which in my mind is a truly satisfying job. When I’m not creating pedagogical resources, I enjoy reading books or walking in the woods with my dog, dancing street jazz and creatively fooling around with my child.
I specially enjoy travelling, discovering different cultures and wondering about pieces of art; principally Urban Art.
I also like learning and developing new skills in different areas, such as graphic design, languages and personal development.
My first introduction to instructional design was in Chile as an undergraduate, where I wrote a children’s textbook about astronomy, with the input of my supervisor’s assistance.
Following this, I furthered my knowledge of digital learning design, following the EdTech (Technology for Education) research approach.
Towards the end of 2019, I decided to design and create digital resources for pedagogical purposes and branched out to develop my skills in authoring tools, graphic design and visual communication.
Personally, I find that learning processes should be rewarding experiences that not only keep you feeling inspired, but encourage you to never stop learning.
Super Palta meaning
Super palta is Chilean slang used when something (principally a task) is easily understood.
I used a visualization tool called “Visual collaboration” for drawing and expressing my knowledge.
