Design – Write – Edit

About Margaret Taylor

For over 25 years, my career has spanned teaching, facilitation, coaching, educational consultancy, instructional design, research and evaluation. I have worked in vocational and higher education, the health sector, manufacturing and automotive industries, community based organisations, industry associations and government.

All of my endeavours have been underpinned by writing.

I am now re-shaping my business and offering services in:

  • Designing and writing for learning and education
  • Writing organisational and business documents
  • Editing

I will continue to facilitate and coach educators and educational managers in various aspects of learning and assessment design, curriculum development, best practice teaching and change management.

My experience in writing and editing includes:

  • Curriculum and courses
  • Assessment strategies and descriptors
  • Teacher and facilitator guides
  • Training manuals
  • Online learning resources
  • Text books
  • Policies and procedures
  • Position descriptions
  • Project reports
  • Research and evaluation reports
  • Theses
  • Proposals and tenders
  • Executive summaries

Check recent projects and activities.

And one of my great joys, at the moment, is writing a travel memoir.

I am also currently a non-executive director of Workways Australia Ltd where I am a member of the Audit & Risk Committee.
