About Me


My name is Lisa Young and I am the new instructional design/educational technology faculty at Scottsdale Community College. I will be working with faculty to assist them in the development and delivery of their hybrid, online, and traditional classroom-based courses. I will be sharing information on instructional design strategies, delivery and facilitation techniques, and instructional technologies.

I would like to take a moment to share a little about my background. I have been a faculty member in the Maricopa Community Colleges since 1993, serving as program director and faculty for water resources technologies, hydrologic studies, and occupational safety and health technology programs. I have earned a B.S. in Geography with an environmental emphasis and a M.Ed. in Learning and Instructional Technology from Arizona State University. I earned my Ph.D. in Instructional Design for Online Learning from Capella University. My dissertation was a research study identifying the instructional uses of podcasting and the instructional design processes used in the creation of podcasts and their incorporation into courses.
