About

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I’m a learning experience designer of educational technology. I currently work at Carnegie Mellon University at the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence. I create and manage online courses, and consult with faculty on the effective use of technology.

Prior to that, I earned my Masters in Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) at Carnegie Mellon’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute. Previously I worked as a project coordinator on the Java Coursera Specialization project at Duke University, where I supported five Coursera courses about introductory Java Programming, including creating instructional materials and coordinating data-driven improvements.

I’m interested in the intersection of learning science, design, and technology: I’m fascinated by how people learn, and passionate about applying my background in cognitive science, computer science, and human-computer interaction to designing technology that helps them learn more effectively. I particularly enjoy language learning and computer science. I love talking with people about design, technology, and education, so if you’d like to chat, please get in touch! You can email me at elizabeth [at] onstwedder [dot] net
