Designing a learner-centered experience is the goal of all good learning design. Yet, traditional learning design has often focused more on content delivery rather than engaging the learner throughout the design process. Also, many designers must balance learner needs against project constraints, stakeholder considerations, and organizational hurdles. How can learning designers embrace these challenges while still creating a learner-centered experience? In this session, you will engage in design thinking and consider the application of this approach in your work. You will also assess the potential benefits and challenges of using this approach in your own setting, and develop strategies for implementation.
