Hello! I’m Diane Weir — The Training Aide.

I’ve worked in Learning & Development for over 20 years, mostly in the software industry. I love to learn, to teach, to tackle tough problems, and to help people and organizations succeed.

A bit about my professional philosophy…

I describe my approach as bold pragmatism.

I like to deliver creative solutions while maintaining a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to claims of the next big thing in instructional design and technology.

My favorite types of projects involve building something from scratch or transforming an existing program so that it can grow.

I believe the best training programs involve human interaction and come from an understanding of:

  • the content matter
  • the needs of the learner
  • the goals of the organization

And a bit about me…

I live in New Hampshire with my husband. I enjoy music of most types. I sing (a lot) and play the trumpet (not nearly so much). One of my goals in 2017 is to get my chops back in shape so that I can serve as a volunteer for Bugles Across America.
