Training & Teaching

Work on your web presence doesn’t end when the site is launched. Websites need on-going investment of time and resources to keep them current, with regular updates and maintenance. I offer comprehensive training services that will teach you and your team all the ins and outs of managing your WordPress website.

Training services are tailored to the needs of each client based on the architecture and functionality applicable to their unique websites. At the end of the session(s), you and your staff will be empowered to work with the user-friendly WordPress admin interface to manage your website independently. I am comfortable conducting training sessions in a one-on-one private setting or through “classroom-style” group workshops, as well as providing written documentation to supplement the sessions for follow-up reference.

In addition to training clients on maintaining their own WordPress websites, I am also available to teach private sessions, workshops and classes in more general aspects of website development and communications, such as coding in HTML/CSS, using Bootstrap Development Framework to build mobile-responsive content for the web, creating and implementing custom WordPress themes, basic digital literacy skills, and using popular social media platforms.

My experience in training and teaching extends to roles as a volunteer instructor and mentor with the Edmonton Chapter of Ladies Learning Code, as well as private and group training sessions for clients. In the spring of 2015, I taught a course in Exploring Social Media for the Edmonton Lifelong Learner’s Association through their partnership with University of Alberta Faculty of Extension, geared toward adults 50 and over.

I have presented seminars at industry conferences WordCamp Edmonton (2013 – building responsive custom WordPress themes with Bootstrap Development Framework) and iMedia (2014 – extending WordPress for social media compatibility).
