Edward Grimsley, Training Specialist
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I started my training career nearly 20 years ago. I’ve trained primarily in the health care field, leadership development and manufacturing. I’m familiar with the ADDIE, SAM, AGILE training models. I have certificates in MS Excel, MS Outlook, Facilitating Synchronously, Virtual Facilitation and Coaching. I’m excited to join the dynamic UC training team and look forward to making a contribution toward maintaining our status as a “Best in Class” training organization.
What is your favorite thing about training? My philosophy! Give me SMART objectives (specific, measureable, attainable, relevant and timely) and participants and we’ll reach our goals, both for learners and the training team. I consider the training profession to be a privilege.
Share an interesting fact about yourself. I’m an avid horse racing fan. At one time I announced races at Turfway Park and Scioto Downs.
Logan Reames, Training Specialist
Gloria Riker, Senior Training Specialist
Matt Robinson, Training Specialist
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I was born and raised in Cincinnati so it's only right that that I should be a Bearcat. Currently I am a training specialist primarily for Catalyst and CaRT; however, I enjoy taking on new projects so you may see me venture out from training the new student information system. Outside of work, I enjoy watching sports and hanging out with my family.
What is your favorite thing about training? My favorite thing about training is the opportunity to create a fun, exciting and informative learning environment for all those who participate.
