From Instructional Design to Learning Experience Design

Event Details

Instructional Design (ID) is the systematic development of training to help people learn and improve.

Learning Experience Design (LXD) is a new way of looking at ID, in which you design learning experiences to have a lasting positive impact (both for the learner, and their organisation), so that each person learns what they need to when they need to, and in the way, they need to learn.

Learning Experience Design will show you how to create learning experiences to develop and embed new habits that will inspire and engage your learners, create business impact and help learners transfer their newfound knowledge and skills back into the workplace. Whether you’re a trainer producing your own materials or you want to specialise in Learning Experience Design, you’ll find this course full of practical tips and useful ideas to help you get behavioural change.

Join us to learn how to practically apply Learning Experience design in a human-centred and agile way.  This course is set at a beginner and intermediate level where you are encouraged to bring along a project to experiment with.  You will leave with practical steps, and new ideas, to bring your project to life. 

If you have already attended an Instructional Design Course, you could also come along to this Learning Experience Design workshop to learn new, modern skills and share your knowledge. This course has been designed to bring your learning to life and participants can apply their new capability to their live project in between the sessions

"This was an excellent informative course, which was beautifully facilitated by Anna Kingston. Her facilitation style and knowledge sharing capabilities were exceptional and I felt right at home from the start to the end. There were many activities and experiences which encouraged us to work with and get to know the other participants and learn from them too. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to learn more about design thinking and learning experience design."  Kelly Killin, Learning Experience Designer,  2 Degrees NZ Ltd.
