I work as an instructional designer & eLearning developer for the Office of Transformational Learning at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am pursuing a Masters in Human Computer Interaction from University of Maryland and anticipate graduating in Spring 2020. I have received my Bachelors of Science in Emerging Media from Ithaca College. Emerging Media is a program that combines communication and computer science. My passion is the intersection of technology and education.


Projects

MicroMasters in MBA Core Curriculum

The MicroMaster in MBA Core Curriculum is a series of massive open online courses that are offered through the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. In collaboration with over 15 unique faculty and my co-designers, Joshua Shannon-Chastain and Diann Maurer, I designed and implemented 7 courses on the edX platform.

HCI Master's Thesis Improving Computer Science Just-In-Time Learning

The goal of this study is to improve just-in-time resources for novice adult computer science learners to better prepare them for future computational learning. For people learning computer science on their own, just-in-time resources can be phenomenal for solving problems. However, these resources may not give the learner the proper support or information to prepare the learner for more formal computer science education. By observing learners using just-in-time resources and interviewing them about their habits and usage we will be able to design new interfaces and educational materials for these just-in-time solutions that could better support future learning. We would like to know how just-in-time learning solutions support self-teaching, adult computer science learners who are new to coding so that we can determine the best ways to improve designs to support them.
