About

Kyle has been in EMS for over 30 years, many of those spent teaching in rural areas. A few years ago, he moved to Maryland to work at the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute, University of Maryland as an instructional designer. There he applied Lev Vygotsky's theories of sociocultural learning and zone of proximate development to create a unique paramedic refresher program utilizing what he calls, "Interactive Learning Case Studies." He has since moved on to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where he is a clinical assistant professor and the Paramedic Program Director. He hopes to explore his delivery method in more detail while at UMBC and to share his experiences with his EMS education colleagues.
