Catriona BarbatoClient Engagement Director, Principal Solutions Architect
One of the first programs Catriona worked on as a newly minted instructional designer was a video-based decision making simulation that was delivered on videodisc (yes, it was a thing)! Since then, learning technologies have advanced at an exponential pace, but one thing has remained constant … the need for a meaningful and valuable learner experience. If the learner doesn’t engage with the learning solution and see its value for their specific situation, it won’t be effective in driving the business goals for which it was designed.
Fast forward about 20 years or so, and she still a designer at heart, but now gets to work with stakeholders and learning leaders on the front end to help them identify performance gaps and then collaborate in the design of innovative solutions to help bridge those gaps for learners. She also has the honor of working with super-talented colleagues to develop and implement creative, eye-catching, solutions that drive performance and help learners attain their professional and personal goals.
