A new evolution of instructional design is upon us, and it involves developing experiential, multi-layered, complex, contextual courses and lessons that do not end when the course closes. These experiences aim to provide learners with enhanced engagement, retention, affordance, and an overall more memorable learning experience. This will require advanced skills in planning, production, development, design, and a clearer understanding of modern learners and learning trends. This course will delve into the new and exciting world of Learning Experience Design (LXD), and present to participants the ways their instructional design techniques and practices can be taken to the next level.

Over the course of six weeks, you will learn:

  • Principles of learning experience design from the learning sciences
  • Principles of learning experience design from instructional design
  • Design thinking processes
  • Designerly ways of knowing

This course is part of our Learning Experience Design Certificate. The entire series includes:
