    SHANE   CLIFFORD Ballard, Emlaghmore, Ballinskelligs, Kerry 0873420630 Twitter: @scliffelearning BIOGRAPHY I am a former ESL, English and Social Studies teacher with an academic background in literature and media studies. I have taught English and ESL in Europe, Africa and Asia over the past ten years and have been exposed to a variety of teaching models and methodologies in this time. I am currently enrolled in an MA in Technical Communications and eLearning with the intention to move into the eLearning industry. I believe my classroom experience and passion for education, coupled with a strong grounding in technical communications theory, make me a suitable candidate for an instructional designer position. SKILLS ã   Articulate Storyline 360 ã   Adobe Captivate ã   Adobe Flash/Animate ã   Audacity ã   Microsoft Office ã   HTML/XML/CSS ã   Collaboration ã   LMSs (Edmodo, Sakai, etc) ã   Technical Writing/Editing ã   Research methodology (needs assessment, audience analysis) ã   Educational theory (Bloom’s taxonomy, gamification, learning domains, etc) EDUCATION MA in Technical Communications and eLearning | University of Limerick  SEP 2017  –  PRESENT This MA, which will be completed in the summer of 2018, has exposed me to theories and practical applications of eLearning models and digital communications practices. On this program, I have gained experience using a range of multimedia and design tools (listed above), as well as knowledge of current research methodologies in technical communications and emerging trends in the industry. I have worked on several individual and collaborative projects during the course of the MA, resulting in a QCA of 3.33 after the spring semester. My final thesis project involves the design of an eLearning resource for Post-primary school history classes, and is being built in collaboration with The Hunt Museum, Limerick. BA in New Media and English | University of Limerick  SEP 2007  –  MAY 2011 My Bachelor of Arts focused on the subjects of English literature and specific aspects of new media, such as design software and audience analysis in a digital world. The English strand of the  2 BA focused largely on literature, but also included modules on technical writing, linguistics and international varieties of English. EXPERIENCE E-moderator/Technical Support | University of Limerick  SEP 2017  –  MAR 2018 As an e-moderator on the Postgraduate Diploma in School Leadership, I facilitated online lessons on the web conferencing tool Big Blue Button (BBB). I coached tutors before each session on how to use the basic functions of BBB, and ensured that each lesson ran as planned on the day. During lessons, I handled any technical issues which arose and provided live technical support for both tutors and students. English and Social Studies Teacher | SABIS Educational Services, Dubai  AUG 2014  –  JUN 2017 Worked in the secondary department of the SABIS International School of Choueifat in Dubai. The school teaches a combination of American, British and SABIS curricula. I taught a range of composition, grammar, literature, geography and history classes across all secondary grades. The range of age groups and topics involved required a varied approach to classroom instruction and use of multimedia resources. In my third year at the school I was given the position of AP English Language and Literature (American curriculum) teacher. This position involved teaching literary criticism to students sitting the Advanced Placement examination for American universities. ESL Teacher | Ebo Young Talking Club, Gwangju, South Korea  MAR 2013  –  MAY 2014 Ebo Young Talking Club is a private English language academy with students ranging from eight-years-old to adults. I evaluated the level of new students and, with the assistance of the school director, placed them in an appropriate class. I planned and conducted one-to-one lessons based on the individual needs and level of adult students. OTHER INTERESTS ã   In 2009 and 2014 I volunteered with the Daughters of Mary and Joseph Catholic order in Ghana as an English teacher in middle and high schools. ã   I have run several fundraisers in Ireland and Dubai for a number of charities. ã   I have always maintained an active presence in Irish communities in my adopted homes. I served as Chairman of Laochra Busan GAA club in South Korea in 2012. ã   I have completed several marathons and half marathons, and enjoy exploring the mountains of Ireland on the weekends. ã   As part of the MA in Technical Communications and eLearning, I maintained a blog on Wordpress discussing matters relevant to eLearning and a collaborative project I took part in with students from Florida and Paris.
