Why I am a Member

Reggie Jackson

Reggie Jackson, Ed D. , is an academic technology analyst with the University of Chicago and an adjunct faculty member for Roosevelt University’s Master of Arts in Training & Development program. An ATDChi member since 2005, he sits on the Board as co-director of university relations. He holds a doctorate in adult and continuing education from National-Louis University, and he is the 2012 recipient of the Dr. Deborah Colky Student Award.

How did you get involved with ATDChi?
I was a student in Roosevelt’s Masters in Training and Development program when Deb Colky talked with us about getting involved and presented the idea of an internship. So I did, and it was a very practical internship working on the redesign of what’s now WLPI. And I got experience in instructional design.

And then years later, in 2012, you were awarded the Deb Colky memorial scholarship as a doctoral student at National Louis. Wow!
Yeah, she was inspirational in many ways. And that’s what I want others to get – what I got—to be active, to meet people, and to see what’s going on, especially in the Chicagoland area.

What is our chapter doing right?
There are always a number of events going on, most with face-to-face networking to meet other people in the field. And we have outreach for students and new learners; we’re in contact with the colleges and schools.

Reggie, now you are serving on the ATDChi Board as co-director of university relations. Why do you volunteer?
University relations is important to me and part of my history of involvement, but again, it’s the face-to-face networking and relationships that keep me an active volunteer.
