Meet our Content Team

Our Education Content Team is a highly skilled and experienced team who are passionate about science and learning! We design and create the lessons and labs within Lt and Lt LabStation, in a variety of subject areas including physiology, anatomy, and biology. Our team includes instructional designers, medical illustrators, and a localization expert.

An important aspect of our work is to keep up with the latest learning design strategies and evidence-based teaching practices so that we can apply these strategies and theories to create accessible, interactive lessons. We introduce students to metacognitive skills so that they can take control of their own learning, and further engage them through questions and interactive activities.

Our medical illustrators make sure our lessons are full of beautiful images with a clear and consistent style, while taking accessibility guidelines into account.

“One of the exciting things about this role is researching pedagogical theory and applying it to our collections and development processes”

    Bryce

    After graduating with a PhD in Marine Science I spent time lecturing undergraduates and co-organizing an art and science collaboration - which forced me to explain complicated concepts in a clear, concise manner! I enjoy sharing my passion for science and engaging both students and the community. I have a keen interest in the best methods to teach science and applying these methods when developing our lessons.

    Favorite Lt collection
    Our Biology collection, developed in partnership with Vernier, not only covers a wide range of topics but allows students a voice and choice in what they learn with added extensions. That ability to engage with the subject allows for student agency, positive engagement, and allows students to form deeper connections with the material.

    I studied Neuroscience at university, with a focus on the role of nucleocytoplasmic protein transport in muscle weakness. I enjoy the multifaceted nature of instructional design and the variety of topics we are able to research and communicate to students. I find it exciting to research pedagogical theory and apply it to our collections and development processes - there is always something new going on in the world of education!

    Favorite Lt collection
    Our wide-ranging Anatomy collection, created in partnership with Touch of Life Technologies, provides dissection, histology, and model labs that ground students in the structure of the human body. Plus, it’s full of illustrations, histology images, and interactive questions so that students can more easily understand this complex field!

    Jess

    Throughout my time studying biochemistry, I developed a passion for making graphical representations of complex datasets. This, combined with a love for the visual arts, led me to become a medical illustrator. I believe clear illustrations greatly enhance a student’s understanding of science. I embrace the challenge of creating images that assist with communicating complex scientific concepts to students.

    Favorite Lt collection
    The Understanding Your Physiology collection - it has such a broad range of interactive questions which are great for student engagement, as well as sections designed to allow students to apply their knowledge.

    As a medical illustrator I develop the artwork and multimedia that brings our digital content to life! My background in graphic design and education gives me a passion for creating fun and interactive learning experiences that engage the senses and improve learners' knowledge and understanding. My role includes illustration, photography, and video editing - and I put these all together in Lt, with its easy authoring system and sleek layout!

    Favorite Lt collection
    The Anatomy Collection stands out for me. It covers every system of the human body, while delving into histology, dissection, and model labs. It has a great array of visual elements and activities to help students understand the material.

    I’m passionate about fostering scientific curiosity and empowering students to take ownership of their learning. My background is in biology and marine ecology, but after a year researching assessment practices in higher education I gained an interest in the cognitive science behind how people learn and remember. I love staying up-to-date with the latest studies in that field, and implementing research-based learning strategies in our lesson design.

    Favorite Lt collection
    Preclinical Medicine is really special because it includes case studies that feature videos of real patients (not actors!), their families, and the entire medical team involved in their care. It’s really powerful to integrate medical science alongside candid videos of individuals sharing their personal experiences with a variety of medical conditions.

    Katie

    I came to instructional design through a love of teaching biochemistry and genetics to undergrad medical students. My Master’s degree in Science Communication taught me many useful skills that I use every day to create fun, engaging content for students. I feel that enjoying learning is such an important first step for students - it gives them the confidence to keep trying until they understand a complex topic.

    Favorite Lt collection
    Clinical Skills walks nursing students through new techniques using realistic videos and real-world documents, before students practice these skills in class. A really nice example of how blended learning allows educators to make the most of in-person teaching time.

    I have an interest in health science, particularly related to the brain. My Master's research explored learning, anxiety, and brain inflammation after stroke but I've enjoyed studying a wide range of life science subjects including physiology, anatomy, and psychology. Good science education is vital to keep advancing both healthcare and neuroscience and I want to make high quality and engaging material that pushes the boundaries of science education.

    Favorite Lt collection
