David Noffs

Learning Designer

I have spent most of my life designing innovative learning environments, from my early work with hi-tech mobile classrooms in Australia’s rural communities, to over ten years as an instructional technologist and designer in the Center for Innovation in Teaching Excellence at Columbia College Chicago.

I joined the Distance Learning team at Northwestern’s School of Professional Studies as a Learning Designer in 2017. In this role, I am able to do what I love most; help educators make learning a productive, enjoyable, and transformative experience.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Roosevelt University and a Master’s Degree in Public Heath from Benedictine University. My doctoral dissertation in Adult and Continuing Education from National Louis University is titled “Resonating Frequencies of a Virtual Learning Community: An Ethnographic Case Study of Online Faculty Development at Columbia College Chicago.”
