Learning Experience Design
We design impactful learning experiences and facilitative leadership resources (courses, infographics, videos, audio stories, and training) that inspire and delight users. We respect and value the intersectionality of adult learners, and facilitate opportunities for reflection and sense-making toward action and change management.
ADDIE is considered a tried-and-true instructional design model. We use an ADDIE+ Equity approach, integrating the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) to ensure that learning benefits everyone. Equity-centred learning approaches focus on content that is representative and relevant, but also on the development of the learners themselves through the ways they engage with the content.
Analyze instructional goals, target audience, and required resources.
Design an experience that aligns to the objectives and strategies and ensures inclusion.
Develop learning resources that are representative and accessible, validate and revise drafts, and conduct a test run. Create a variety of learning assets of various sizes and methods to provide learners with the learning they need, based on how, when, and where they need it.
Implement learning solutions by creating an inclusive and accessible learning space and engaging participants.
Evaluate the quality of the learning resources and processes, in addition to how well they accomplish the goals and build belonging for all learners.
