LaDale L. Whaley
Hello! My name is LaDale Whaley, (pronounce LAH-dayl WAY-lee). I have had the privilege to work over 20 plus years as a Graphic Designer in various industries for a College Relations Department, Broadcast Media, and Marketing departments; and over 8 years in Higher Education as a General Education and Graphic Design instructor, a Department Chair for the School of Drafting and Design, as well as an Instructional Technology Trainer and Academic Technology Consultant. Although I have experienced various industries, education is my favorite!
A native of Toledo, OH, I have earned an A.A.B. in Graphic Design from Davis College, Toledo, OH, a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in communication, business and design from the University of Toledo, Toledo, OH, and a M.S. in Education Media Design and Technology from Full Sail University, Winter Park, FL. In addition to my formal education, I have worked to earned recognition as a Microsoft Office Specialist, Quality Matters Peer Reviewer, Apple Teacher, Adobe Education Trainer, and an Adobe Campus Leader.
My professional strengths include the design, development, implementation, and delivery of instructional and training material; as well as creative direction and leadership with print, interactive, and motion design, and video editing for business and educational material. Consequently, I am proficient in using the Adobe Creative Cloud and eLearning Suite, Final Cut Pro, Microsoft Office 365, Articulate, LMS systems operation and administration, multimedia equipment, and an avid Apple hardware and software user.
Workshop 1 - Create a Training Video
The first assignment was to create a training video using Adobe Premier Rush. For this assignment, I created a video on how to set up a print document is Adobe InDesign. This is part of a lecture that I do for my students in my Page Layout Tools course. I start every session demonstrating how to set up the print document, so this would be a great preliminary video to load to my course. It is also a good video to send to students when they have a question on setting up their document.

Option C - InDesign Template
have recently started using the publishing feature of InDesign to create and share my own design work, but had not considered creating the documents to share in my classroom. This assignment was good practice for not only creating my lesson plan and sharing it, but also how to set up my lesson plans to share with other, and post to participants. I particularly like the publishing feature because it can be easily shared and updated directly from InDesign.
