Author Introduction

Hello everyone!
My name is Tyler Graham and I am a System Administrator within Trine University’s I.T. department. I started with Trine in March of 2018 as a Director of Admission for TrineOnline’s Fort Wayne Education Center. In September 2019, I began working for the IT department where I held positions such as Moodle Administrator, Instructional Designer, & I.T. Services Supervisor.

I have worn a lot of hats throughout my work history. I have worked in restaurant management, community-based mental health case management, sales, university admissions, and Information Technology. Although I have worked in many different fields, there has always been one common thread – training and talent development.

While in restaurant management, I created training materials, process manuals, and facilitated frequent orientations throughout high-turnover environments. When I worked as a mental health case manager, my focus was on assisting and coaching individuals in developing intrapersonal, interpersonal, and professional skills. I spent a great deal of time assisting faculty with troubleshooting technical problems as well as offering advice for instructional design, educational technology, and course development within Moodle. I still assist students and faculty in many capacities, but as a System Administrator, I spend most of my time working within various project management elements of IT.

Academically, I earned an A.S. in Human Services (Ivy Tech Community College), a B.S. in Psychology (Trine University), and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) through Trine University as well.

In my spare time away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife (Ashtyn) and traveling whenever possible, hiking, reading, disc golfing, playing games of all mediums, learning new skills, and socializing with friends and family.

I am excited to have the opportunity to facilitate this course for you. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions throughout your time in this course and beyond.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at tdgraham16@trine.edu or by phone at 260-665-4685.

I look forward to working with you. Take care!
