Looking to Shadow eLearning Hero for Storyline Advancement

Hello Support Team,

I am pretty new to the eLearning community (in my role less than a year), and have found the Articulate Storyline tutorials, forums and Support Team to be an amazing resource for growing my knowledge base. Where I feel I can still greatly improve, however, is in the initial development and design phase of creating a new project.

Often I am given a "skeleton" outline by an SME who is a novice with Storyline, so when it's handed off to me, it's usually a collection of jumbled images on each slide, a typed out script in the notes, and comments within the notes asking for creative or interactive elements the SME envisions for the module. My job then, is to go about the task of recording the script, adjusting screen images, and adding interactivity elements to present a completed module. And while I've attended a professional training class, and taken full advantage of the assistance available here, I know I can still improve, and I think that can only come from continuing to view others "at work" using the Storyline tool.

So what I'm asking, is if it might be possible to shadow one of your eLearning Heroes during the initial design stages of creating a module - storyboarding, organization, different ideas for interactivity elements as well as accessibility options for 508 compliance... or, if I can get it approved by my corporate office, do a live screen-sharing of one of my own modules in the beginning stages, where if one of you were to be given the same elements I'm given, what would you do, and how would you design it?

I think watching an expert from beginning to end (or at least a condensed "best practices" version of beginning to end) would really help take me to the next level in my career advancement... so whatever assistance you all can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
