About ILT

 

At Integrated Learning Technology, we are committed to changing the way people think about training - to looking at things outside of the "box" of traditional classroom lectures.


Who we are:

Integrated Learning Technology is a firm consisting of individuals who specialize in instructional design and development and methods for improving performance - individual, employee, and organizational performance.

At ILT, we are committed to providing quality and service. Our staff shows enthusiasm, excitement, and attention to detail throughout the design and development process. We believe in providing individualized attention in order to develop high-quality materials on-time and on-budget.


What we do:

ILT is a one-stop-shop for all your performance related issues. Our main focus is on performance: individual, organizational, or client-centered. We analyze your performance needs and make recommendations for resolutions.

  • If the solution is for training, we will develop a comprehensive training program.
  • If the solution is developing or enhancing your organization's presence on the internet, we will develop a architecturally sound, efficient and productive web site.
  • If the solution is a more efficient method of employee or customer-related training, we will analyze all aspects of possible learning solutions and develop a product which meets your specific needs. If this involves distance, remote, or on-line learning, we will develop an educationally sound and cost-efficient method for providing such training.

From start to finish, ILT can help your organization succeed. Our specialties include the following:

  • instructional design
  • web site development
  • performance consulting
  • multimedia development
  • developing total learning packages
  • creating on-line training solutions
  • technical writing

Whatever your needs, ILT can help. And we can start at any phase of a project. If you already know your needs, we can develop them into a meaningful program. Whether an entire training program, modular instructional tools, a web-site for promoting your organization, or for hosting an on-line training program, a "how-to" manual, or multimedia components such as Microsoft™ PowerPoint presentations, slides, audio or video for a presentation, we can satisfy all your needs.

If you are uncertain as to what your specific needs are, we can conduct a performance review to analyze your organization's needs, identify specific issues, and determine the best method for resolving such.

Our Founder:

ILT was founded by Catherine Parvensky Barwell, R.N. M.Ed. Catherine has over eighteeb years experience in the field of education, training, and management. She is a results oriented executive specializing in education technology.

Catherine began her career in the medical field as an RN and then in the prehospital arena. She began teaching medical training courses and quickly advanced to the Director of Training for County Government. In that capacity, she was responsible for conducting needs assessments and producing "just-in-time" training on numerous topics and issues. During this time she authored her first textbook "Teaching EMS".

Catherine has authored or contributed to 20 textbooks and instructor manuals for Mosby/Harcourt Health Sciences and Prentice Hall. In addition, she designed and developed "AED Alive", a computer-based training program on Automatic External Defibrillation, for the Laerdal Medical Corporation.

While Ms. Barwell's background was in the medical field, her experience and abilities led her to a much larger field of performance engineering and instructional systems, training design and development.

Catherine left the government arena and moved to the University setting where she co-developed and directed a Master of Education program in Health Care Education Technology. During this time, she was an integral part of a development team which launched Internet courses at the University level. She was instrumental in launching distance education in the medical field and has developed numerous on-line training programs for graduate, undergraduate, and continuing education programs.

Catherine left the academic arena to pursue an entrepreneurial market. She founded ILT to help companies use education and training as a means to help employees excel.


Our Philosophy:

Our philosophy is basic: to do the best job as inexpensively as possible. Our clients are the content experts and we are the design experts. Together, we can build a successful strategy for any performance issue.

At ILT, we utilize technology to explain complex theories with engaging interactive graphics rather than large amounts of text. We believe students should take an active role in the learning process. People learn best by analyzing scenarios, making choices, and solving problems.

With web-site development, we believe that simpler is often better. We stay clear of gimmicks and features that cloud the message. We focus on developing a site which is user-centered, easy to navigate, and full of valuable information for your customers.

At ILT, we believe that the materials we develop serve as a reflection not only on your company, but on ours as well. As such, we produce the highest quality material with the greatest attention to detail.


Our Code of Ethics:

At ILT, we adhere to a very simple code; be honest.

If we recommend a particular strategy, we do so because it is the best method for accomplishing a goal. If alternative strategies are available, we will provide them as well, along with a cost-benefit analysis.

We will not recommend development of a product which is readily available for purchase at a cheaper price.

We will not include items which have no benefit except to increase revenue from a project.

The bottom line is that, at ILT, we only succeed if you succeed.
