I am Belinda (WanQi) Jin, a self-directed instructional and graphic/web designer with a keen interest in creative pursuits, digital illustrations, human-centered design, learning design, and technologies. With over five years of experience as a Learning Technologist, Instructional Designer, and Researcher, I’ve contributed to various post-secondary institutions such as Simon Fraser University, Brighton College, CDI College, VanArts College, and West Western Maritime Institute.
Originally from China, I initially delved into Communication Media studies at SFU before focusing on Educational Technology. I successfully completed the Education Master Program at Simon Fraser University, specializing in Educational Technology and Learning Design. My educational background in Communications and Education equips me with the skills to work effectively in both small and large teams, showcasing confidence in multitasking.
I firmly believe that effective design revolves around considering the user’s experience while conveying a compelling story through a straightforward design approach. Eager to apply my learning and multimedia design knowledge, I look forward to creating new experiences in the educational field. My favorite quote encapsulates my philosophy: “What you like becomes what you are good at.”
Seeking a long-term collaboration with a forward-thinking company, I thrive on working within a team to enhance and develop my skills. Explore some of my academic projects at Simon Fraser University to witness my contributions.
