If you hear laughter echoing, there is a good chance Doug Kueker is close by. Good humor is one of his trademarks, but don’t let that fool you. When it comes to work ethic, you won’t find anyone more focused than Doug. Some people say designing learning and teaching is both an art and a science; Doug would agree and finds joy in this intersection with every project.

Doug’s career and background have given him outstanding opportunities to learn the art and science of teaching and learning. Doug led curriculum design and new learning initiatives at the National FFA Organization before helping launch Vivayic. He holds a master’s degree in education psychology from Purdue University and is finishing his Ph.D. in learning technology and information sciences at University of Missouri.

As Director of Learning Services, Doug brings his insights about the art and science of learning design to bear. He leads teams to propose effective and innovative solutions that solve some our client’s most difficult and important issues. Doug manages key accounts with the same approach to life—relentless effort, generosity and focus on the important measures of success.

Doug lives with his wife Emily in Lake Ozark, Missouri. In Doug’s book, a glass of wine with an engaging book or movie is the perfect escape from a busy day. Good food, coffee, cooking and running are a few of his other favorite pastimes. Doug supports organizations that do great things for youth: St. Jude, FFA, 4-H and Special Olympics.
