Scott Wright Ed.D.

About Me

Hello, my name is Dr. Scott Wright. I am an Instructional Designer with the University of Arkansas's Global Campus. I believe that the online learning experience can transform the lives of learners by opening doors of opportunity where none existed before. I am passionate about my work, and I consider myself a lifelong learner at heart.

With more than seven years of experience in instructional design and higher education, I am committed to providing inclusive and accessible online learning experiences for all learners. My work includes collaborating with faculty to become better educators by implementing pedagogical and technological best practices for online teaching.  

​​

Throughout my career, I’ve had the great fortune to work on some truly inspiring projects while meeting many influential and creative individuals in higher education along the way. I believe in working together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

 

I have a B.S. in Digital Media and Design, an M.Ed. in Educational Technology, and a Doctorate in Adult and Lifelong Learning (Ed.D.) with my research focused on how LGBTQ+ students perceive the construct of social presence and what considerations go into their decisions related to self-disclosure of their sexual orientation or gender identity in online classes. On a personal note, I recently became engaged to Cory, my partner of over three years. I am a dog dad to two of the most spoiled rotten pugs in existence. I also love classic cinema, and I'm an avid hiker. 

For more information about my experience, portfolio, or how we can collaborate on an upcoming project, please reach out!
