Welcome to my studio. I’m Dr. Scatliff, artist, researcher, and creative thinker. I develop creative projects and collaborations about the latest innovations in learning both in and outside of traditional schooling. Whether you are in school or not, it is important to take control of your learning. Emerging disciplines like positive psychology, user design/design-thinking, brain-based education, entrepreneurial practices, and open source education have much to offer when designing your own system for a lifetime of successful learning.

On this site, you’ll see a developmental model, Illuminative Model for Networked Learning, which I developed after 12 years of conducting interviews, research and designing community learning projects with a variety of collaborators. The model guides learners in designing their own learning systems based on their strengths, interests, and informal networks. The Illuminative Method shows seven-steps for learning design that supports this model.
