matt-and-empieI’m Matt Lewis, a world-traveling educator, passionate storyteller, ardent media producer, and in my spare time a comedic improviser. After completing my undergraduate studies, I taught English in Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and Turkey. I discovered that I enjoyed planning curricula and classes, so I pursued a career as an instructional designer. Now I partner with faculty to address issues that arise with student engagement in all types of educational environments. In my toolbox I have a variety of strategies to offer my clients, which usually revolve around integrating technology.

I assembled this eportfolio in order to showcase work where I had creative control. I’ve grouped the work into several categories:
Instructional Design – educational artifacts created for a college-level audience
Teaching – teaching examples and philosophy
Storytelling – short films that reflect on significant life moments
Performance – highlights from my stage and film experience
Web Design – websites and other artifacts I’ve created
Travel – collections of photographs from my travels

These pursuits put me into a creative mode, or in the “flow” as Dr. Csikszentmihalyi would put it (watch his TED Talk). Time stops and I’m fully engaged.  It happens when editing a digital story, facilitating a learning community, or leading a class discussion. When completed, I’m filled with deep satisfaction. It’s my mission in life to continually find my flow as I move from project, to classroom, to performance. The categories linked above and tags to the right will show you some of the results of this state of mind.
