MY BACKGROUND

Welcome! My name is Claudia Mirt, and I am an instructional designer and Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland, College Park. 

In the Smith School of Business, I work as an instructional designer, helping faculty and staff build digital learning opportunities for new undergraduate and graduate program courses. In this role, I am passionate about making learning more accessible for students, particularly when considering the best ways to integrate UX/UI design principles into online learning spaces.

In the College of Education, I am beginning to pursue my Ph.D. in Education Policy and Leadership (May 2023 - onward). Currently, my academic and research interests center around equitable teaching and learning policies, particularly as they relate to teacher and student well-being. Other things I can talk at length about include: civic education, special education, educational economics, tracking (across many levels), school choice, and...the role of democracy in all of these things.

If you'd like to chat more about any of these topics, reach out! 🐦
