I’m Britta—welcome to my Instructional Design Portfolio. I’m glad you’re here!
I am a lifelong educator and hold a Master’s in Instructional Design and Development (M.S. in IDD) in addition to a Master’s in Higher Education Administration (M.Ed in Higher Ed Admin). I love applying what I know about Learning Sciences to my work.
My approach comes from a Human Performance Theory perspective, but I lean heavily on Cognitive and Constructivist Theories (Information Processing Theory, Cognitive Load Theory—including multimedia theory, expertise reversal effect, Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory—the Zone of Proximal Development/More Knowledgeable Other), other social learning theories like Cognitive Apprenticeship and Communities of Practice, plus Positive Psychology (Grit, Growth Mindset, Appreciative Inquiry). Finally, I am obsessed with how we can increase intrinsic motivation and learner engagement by applying Self-Determination Theory (designing for autonomy, competence, and relatedness).
I started in Higher Education (you can read more about that part of my life on the Meet Britta page), but I am now working in the business sector for a Software Member Management and Payments company. I absolutely love working in business training! If you want to see current professional work samples, please contact me (below).
