My name is Helen Hill. I am currently working as an instructional and graphic designer within an elearning company in Yorkshire, UK where I work across both the instructional design and graphic design teams. I also have my own freelance graphic design business - UnlikelyGenius - which I run in my spare time.
Being fairly new to ID and as part of wanting to develop my skills in this area I have decided to undertake a MicroMasters in Instructional Design with EdX and the University of Maryland.
This website has been produced as part of my coursework to record my development on that course plus any general inspiration that I come across in my research. This site is to focus on instructional design, whereas my main site unlikelygenius.com is to remain focused on graphic design for now.
