About our speaker
Jody Miller joined the University of Phoenix (UOPX) in 2007 as the Product Manager for the University website and has held key management positons within the organization, becoming the Vice President of Website Strategy and Operations in 2013.
Jody’s passion for education, along with the combination of her marketing and technology skills allowed her to continue to expand her focus on design within the fast-paced environment of UOPX and in 2014 she founded the first Office of Experience design in Higher Education under the University Provost. The focus of the Experience Design Office is analyzing the student journey, researching and testing student needs in the in-house UX lab and working to define the entire student experience from interest to commencement.
Jody’s connection to education has always been a strong one. Prior to joining the University she worked for a digital and telephony certification company that held industry leading certifications. She held multiple roles within the organization ranging from managing web development and product marketing to directing SEO, PR and marketing communications.
Throughout her 18 years in digital learning Jody realized that in every sense, a company focused on education must fulfill the promise it makes to its students. Learning is more than just going to class, completing assignments and taking tests. Learning also means providing a thoughtful and rich classroom experience and an environment that allows knowledge to flourish. This promise, coupled with analytics, experience data and user research, along with a strong focus on student needs, help deliver constant improvement in positive learning outcomes. It is this that drives Jody each and every day.
Jody holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from the University of Montana and holds certifications in digital multimedia and web design.
