Beyond serving the university and the profession, Dr. Correia has been truly committed to serving the community. Together with her students, she collaborates with professional organizations in formal and informal educational settings in order to establish long- term educational partnerships.
At Iowa State University, most of her outreach activities took place in the context of her courses on instructional design. One of the courses was designed as a multi-team instructional consulting company that produced professional-level service free of charge and offered a model for entrepreneurship education across campus. As evidence of these efforts a service center – Learning Design Solutions – was created to provide instructional technology consulting services within Iowa State University and to communities throughout the US.
