TECHNICAL SKILLS

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 eager to learn new technologies and explore their pedagogical potentials in creating engaging and effective learning experiences.

An Iterative Design Approach

WORKFLOW

With a deep understanding of multiple learning theories (e.g. social learning, inquiry-based learning, gamification) and instructional design models (e.g. ADDIE, SAM), I use them flexibly to create learning experiences that best fit the learners’ needs 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 process.

ABOUT

My name is Yu Guo, not You Go. I go by Bryan to save everyone some time. I am finishing up my Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences program at Northwestern University. In my spare time, 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.
