Interests: Trauma-informed and Anti-racist Pedagogy | Active learning | Student-centered Course Design

I wanted a program that would allow to combine my passion for educational transformation with my expertise in public speaking, mass communications, and intercultural communication. The technology component set it over the top. The opportunity to explore how technology can be used to transform classrooms and universities was exciting to me and was evident in this program. In the summer, I teach an education technology course for high school students in Georgetown's Summer College Immersion Program.

Ambika Putri Perdani | Indonesia

Interests: Research and App Development for Neurodiversity learner

Choosing the LDT program at Georgetown was a natural step for me, fueled by my fervent interest in design and innovation within education. 'Prior to my studies [at Georgetown], I initiated 'Rumah Belajar' as a response to the 'New Normal' ushered in by the Indonesian Government post COVID-19 pandemic. It was my firsthand venture into this realm. Designed to support students in my community, it addressed the significant shifts required to adapt to new modes of learning. This endeavor underscored the critical need for innovative educational strategies and reinforced my desire to delve deeper into this area. Georgetown's Learning, Design, and Technology program, renowned for its emphasis on progressive learning and technological solutions, seemed like the ideal setting to expand my knowledge and refine my skills for a greater impact.
