Update from the new Instructional Design Intern

Hello everyone! My name is Edra, and I am the new Instructional Design Intern here at City Tech. I’m excited to get to know you all! I have been spending some time this week learning about the day-to-day flow at the library and observing some student interactions with librarians at the ref desk. As a UX designer, I am interested in seeing how daily tasks and operations in the library translate on the library’s website.

My goal is to make everyone’s experience on the City Tech library website just as interactive and useful as it is in real life. This will require some prototyping of the LibGuides page, recruiting research participants, and conducting card-sort studies. Additionally, I’ll be researching some social media strategies that may help us share the wealth of resources we have to offer to students, both in-person and online.
