Hi, I’m Brittany Robinson an Instructional Experience Designer, Learning Strategist, and Whovian. I work at the intersection of education, marketing, UX/UI, and software engineering for corporate and academia. I specialize in tech courses, coding bootcamps, and programming apprenticeships for virtual, blended, or online learning.
With over 15 years of experience in Instructional Design, Technical Training, and Adult Learning Theory, I design and develop training materials, curricula, learning campaigns, and websites for industries spanning tech, finance, manufacturing, healthcare, government, and correctional institutions.
My marketing campaign background allows me to create custom-built learning campaigns that overcome the Forgetting Curve. With a career spanning marketing, graphic & web design, technical training, and curriculum development, I always strive to make learning fun yet professional and effective yet memorable.
Loves: Unreal Engine; magenta hair; teaching kids to code; encouraging women to pursue tech jobs
Superpowers: meeting tight deadlines in fast-paced environments. (I know it doesn’t have a ring to it, but “leaping tall buildings in a single bound” was taken…)
Stats: In my home state of Kentucky, I’ve designed, implemented, and facilitated numerous coding bootcamps that have sold out with waitlists, including Kentucky and Indiana's first CoderDojo, and first all-girls Minecraft code camp. My code bootcamps consistently receive rave reviews from learners and parents alike, and I’ve been ranked in four separate “top ten lists” of national tech bootcamps. To date, I’ve taught 700+ Appalachian youths and reached an estimated 16,000 global learners, 75% of whom are female. Coming full circle, I’ve helped Kentucky’s Lt. Governor create a STEM program for middle school girls, including the same school I attended while teaching myself to code.
2020 Coro Women in Leadership Education Fellow
A fellowship and intensive training for diverse mid-career women learning leadership development, problem-solving, inclusion, intersectionalism, and negotiation.
Women in Tech JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) Meetup Group
One of the vibrant communities and meetup groups I’ve helped run over the years was a quarterly Women in Tech JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) Meetup Group. During the COVID-19 pandemic between 2020-2021, women in tech met virtually over Zoom every quarter to discuss how to bring more women into the tech & STEM fields, how to teach more girls and women to code, how to improve job opportunities and working environments for all women (including but not limited to: working mothers, trans women, indigenous women, unhoused women, women of color, women identifying as queer, etc.), and how to bring more equity and inclusion of diverse, intersectional women into the tech field. Participants included thought leaders from Adobe, Verizon, Salesforce, Dropbox, Treehouse, Pluralsight, Fidelity, and more.
Board of Advisors
An Egyptian woman-owned EdTech startup with roots in both Africa and Kentucky, Edulga is a social educational platform powered by generative AI. In December 2023, I joined Edulga's Board of Advisors, serving as a business strategy consultant and advising the international team as they pitch Edulga to investors and business partners. At the forefront of a revolutionary transformation in generative curriculum design, Edulga's team of instructional designers, software engineers, and learning engineers harnesses the power of machine learning and human-centered algorithms to facilitate the evolution of students into lifelong learners. The upcoming app will empower teachers as content creators and curators, transform schools into dynamic learning environments, and enable all participating institutions to collectively shape a global knowledge repository.
