Carlee Russell: A Modern Instructional Desginer

Before I knew what an Instructional Designer was, I was one.

I’ve been creating classes, on my own and as part of professional teams, for over 6 years. With the addition of a robust and modern MS in Learning, Design, and Technology from the University of Wyoming (May 2022), my hands-on experience is bolstered by current educational theories, recent research, and up-to-date technology.


I’ll save you time on the front end and in the long run. By working directly with your instructors and SMEs, I will create high-quality course shells ready for their content. A well designed course shell means years of simple edits instead of constant reconstruction. And of course, time is money.


From start to finish, I’ll be available for questions and demonstrations. I’m easy to get in touch with and responsive to communication from every stakeholder involved.


I bring the best from both worlds: education and business. Combining best practices and new tech from both means the best possible user experience.
