P19 Becoming a Learning Experience Designer
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, October 24
“Instructional design” is too limited now as it deals with “instruction,” which is only a small part of the learning process. It’s time to think differently about how to design learning programs that integrate formal, informal, and on-the-job learning. Learning experience design (LXD) is a method of facilitating skill development by providing learners with a systematic set of experiences supported by content, feedback mechanisms, and technology.
In this workshop, you’ll begin the process of transitioning from instructional designer to learning experience designer. 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 employ learning technology ecosystems to implement and track 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 encourage the organizational and cultural changes needed to make learning experience design work
- How to use technology to measure the effectiveness of learning experiences
Novice to advanced designers, project managers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
discussed in this session:
General application of xAPI, mobile, LMS, content management systems, and social and collaboration systems.
