Brooke Smith

Assistant Program Director & Learning Experience Catalyst

Brooke engages learners in innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland and beyond through human-centered courses and workshops. She creates and facilitates those experiences using design thinking and lean startup to empower learners ranging from undergraduate students to graduate students to working professionals to become creative problem solvers.

She also develops and coaches interactive workshops and programs for academic and public sector leaders across the region like the Stanford Teaching and Learning Studio, the Department of Health and Human Services, NASA, and USDA focused on applying human-centered design methods to their respective fields.

Beyond her formal roles, Brooke enjoys experiencing nature from the ground up to the sky through hiking, hammocking, and backyard birding. Brooke is an avid podcast listener seeking out podcasts that tell engaging, human-centered stories and loves bringing nature into her home through her laissez-faire approach to indoor gardening.
