About Me

Darrdraperyl Draper is a faculty member in the STEM and Professional Studies Department at Old Dominion University. She is highly experienced in the design and delivery of e-learning in higher education and corporate contexts. Her specializations focus on e-learning. Specifically, using the e-learning Maturity Model framework as a bench-marking and quality improvement tool for institution’s e-learning activities. While at her previous institution, she employed the eMM framework on an online master’s Instructional Technology Specialist program to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses for process improvement. The analysis enabled the program to develop a strategy from the data that resulted in multiple high rankings from US News and World Report for online graduate programs in 2012.

She transitioned from the corporate arena into higher education to further her passion in knowledge creation and sharing in groups and organizations. Her work focuses on the interplay of individual and organizational knowledge in the creation, sharing, and management of best practices.

In 2012, she was a Distinguished Dissertation Award recipient from the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) for her dissertation entitled, “The Instructional Effects of Knowledge-
Based Community of Practice Learning Environments on Student Achievement and Knowledge Convergence.” http://www.performancexpress.org/2012/04/2012-distinguished-dissertation-award/
