With a degree in computer science and extensive training at Northwestern University’s Center for Connected Learning and Computer-Based Modeling, I am proficient in multiple types of software and computer programming languages. In addition, I am always passionate to learn new technologies and explore their pedagogical potentials in creating engaging and effective learning experiences.
An Iterative Design Approach
With a deep understanding of multiple learning theories (e.g. social learning, inquiry-based learning, gamification) and instructional design models (e.g. ADDIE, 4C-ID), I flexibly mix and match them to create learning experiences that best fit the learners’ and their organization’s goals. In addition, I adopt emerging design approaches, such as design thinking and agile methods, to improve the quality and efficiency of my design.
My name is Yu Guo, not You Go. I go by Bryan to save every one some time. I am finishing up my Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences program at Northwestern University. Currently, I am actively looking for full time employment opportunities. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and I’m open to relocation. When not working, I enjoy photography, singing in choirs (I’m all about that bass, no treble), practicing Aikido (a Japanese martial art), and spending time with my family.
