Organizational Training & Performance
President Elect

Ashley McArthur
University of West Florida

My AECT involvement spans three years (upon beginning my masters of education), and includes contributions in GSA and OTP. I actively contribute as a GSA volunteer on such projects as the division YouTube channel, the newsletter, and webinar coordination. In the OTP division, I serve as the YouTube channel committee chair and the vice president of communications. I am looking to expand my contributions and activity to include STC.

Academically, I am in the process of obtaining my Doctorate of Education at the University of West Florida in Instructional Technology and Design with concentrations in Human Performance Technology and Distance Learning Implementation. The majority of my research focuses on diverse populations and providing in-the-field instruction and training to traditionally-marginalized groups. The majority of my work experience is in instructional design, human performance technology and project management. I have worked in academic, military, government, and private business settings.  

I was raised on a farm in Northern California; my father's family has been farming in the area for four generations. I am the oldest of four children, and, though we are separated by a great deal of physical distance, we are all very close. My family has always had an "open arms" policy, and we hosted exchange students through much of my life (from Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Thailand and Slovakia). I have an innate desire to learn and as much as possible about others so that I may contribute positively to people's lives in a grow-grow environment.

I am hoping to serve as the STC communications officer to make positive connections with and contributions  to the lives of others. Additionally, I hope to grow current communication practices and processes while creating opportunities for additional involvement.
