This course was a great introduction to learning design. The material was engaging and up-to-date and the live sessions provided the opportunity to apply what I'd learnt. I'd strongly recommend it!
Learning design models such as ADDIE, TPACK, UDL and UBD draw on learning sciences and can be leveraged to respond to a range of pedagogical challenges and needs. In this microcredential, you’ll learn to employ these models to develop an evidence-informed solution to a real-world learning design brief.
Ground your design work in the foundational learning design approaches and theories of learning, such as cognitive load theory and mastery learning, and stay up to date learning about design thinking, learner experience design and performance improvement theory. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and confidence to design engaging and effective technology-enhanced learning environments across a wide range of industries.
