Richa Kapoor, Ph.D.

Instructional Designer at Uber Technologies

San Carlos, California

I am a learning experience designer who loves to craft engaging, impactful, and fun learning experiences that help businesses and brands educate and inspire their learners. I have 15+ years of experience designing and building instruction for anyone, anytime, anywhere. I love to partner with technology companies and startups to re-imagine corporate learning and development.
I also have an eccentric devotion to learning.

I hold a Ph.D. in Literacy Education, an M.Ed. in English Education, and a Bachelor's in English Literature. My mix of skills includes:

➢ bringing creativity and proficiency in adult learning pedagogies and storytelling, along with UX/UI skills to execute on complex and multiple regional and global projects (eLearning, instructor-led, blended) for multiple lines of business (Uber Eats, Uber Rides, Uber for Business, Safety, Professional Development, etc.) along with leading a team of instructional designers and design specialists.
➢ creating content for 'Reach' (a Business English learning app from GlobalEnglish) and for MindSnacks' app 'Elevate' (Apple's App of the Year for 2014) to help users hone their English language skills.
➢ assessing grassroots literacy models for Oxfam & writing a white paper on community-based, sustainable education practices to inform government policy.
➢ teaching world literature to 11th graders - everything from Japanese Noh theater to Greek tragedy - using inquiry and project-based learning.
➢ writing a Ph.D. dissertation to critique curricular and pedagogical practices in English teaching in postcolonial India.
➢ playing writing guru to those struggling with their craft since I love wicked good prose!

I bring an understanding and knowledge of the field of learning and communication acquired through work and study in diverse (including international) settings, strong research and writing skills, and a meticulous, self-motivated work ethic.

I'd love to chat so don't hesitate to reach out.
