During the Webinar
Learning Experience Design, or LXD, is often cited as the 21st-century answer to instructional design. The goal is to combine traditional teaching and learning theories with design-thinking, user experience design, and emerging education to create immersive learning experiences. And while the goal is simple, the recent global pandemic has accelerated the need for highly-trained Learning Experience Designers. These professionals are being recruited more and more in higher education, corporate, and professional organizations especially as they continue to look to technology and online education to enhance and expand learning opportunities remotely. This webinar will explore how educators can better align their skillsets to become highly-effective and highly-employable professionals.
