Tammy Berman Ph.D. – Vice President Design Organisation: Socratic Arts, USA
I am a course/program learning designer who works with subject matter experts to design and develop instructional courses for companies and higher ed degree programs. I worked with Paul Hartong last year in developing a course in Supply Chain Management for a learning-by-doing MBA program. Paul is not only an cutting-edge expert in the field of supply chain management, but he made it truly a privilege and delight to work with him. Paul exudes immense enthusiasm for the work he does. He was highly invested in our project, quickly and masterfully producing significant amounts of data to support our fictional case, teaching our development team the subject matter on long calls through which he never tired, contributing focused effort toward helping us craft learning activities that would challenge and provide effective experiences for the learners, and reading through the teams’ work to ensure they built materials that best supported the instructional content and case context. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Paul again in the future.
