What is your area of expertise?  How does your personal and professional experience relate to your Learning Master role? I do staff development and training. I have a background in design and implementation. I have the ability to read my students and determine the type of training they need. I can implement training that satisfies the 3 types of learners, kinesthetic, audio, and visual. I also have worked with my employer to implement a change in evaluation procedures by assisting in training over 5000 employees in the new procedure. Our group was responsible for training over 15,000 total.
