Jason Dean Arnold is a former elementary and high school teacher with a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership and a doctorate in process. Jason is the Learning Systems Architect for the University of Florida’s College of Education distance learning program. In this role, he works as a liaison for designers, developers, and end-users to determine the needs of a new web-based resource and lead the vision. He informs the design and creation of content, oversees the development and testing of the new tool, and leads the deployment of the final product. Although he works in several roles (project manager, instructional designer, etc.), all of his work challenges him to find creative solutions.
