P03 Learning Experience Design: A Better Way to Support Learning Ecosystems
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, March 20
Learning and development professionals are under pressure to produce results. The traditional methods of instructional design can often fall short. You have to think differently about how to design learning programs that integrate formal, informal, and on-the-job learning that get results. Learning experience design (LXD) is a method for facilitating this ongoing development of skills by providing learners with a systematic set of experiences supported by content, feedback mechanisms, and technology.
In this workshop, you will begin the process of transitioning from instructional design to learning experience design. You’ll see how to leverage technology, especially mobile and the Experience API (xAPI), to deliver, capture, and track learning experiences. You’ll see examples of LXD in action. You’ll get to practice applying the six-step learning experience design process to your own projects. You’ll leave with a set of research-based guidelines for designing, structuring, and sequencing experiences into optimized learning paths.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to design effective learning experiences
- How to apply parent disciplines (like cognitive science, user experience design, information design, and design thinking) to learning design
- How to create and sequence a systematic set of learning experiences that lead to improved job performance
- How to employ learning technology ecosystems to implement and track learning experiences
- How to encourage the organizational and cultural changes needed to make learning experience design work
- How to measure the effectiveness of learning experiences
Novice, intermediate, and advanced designers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.) with a basic understanding of instructional design.
Technology discussed in this session:
General application of xAPI, mobile, LMS, content management systems, and social and collaboration systems.
