In recent years we’ve made important strides in learning experience design (LXD) ―but the transformation is not yet complete.
If we want to truly reap the rewards of performance improvement, success, retention, and business growth, there needs to be seismic shift from a content focus, or even an experience focus, to a learner focus. If we truly believe in creating Meaningful, Memorable, and Motivational learning experiences that improve performance, we need to re-think how we approach our formula for success.
Join Dr. Michael Allen and Ethan Edwards of Allen Interactions and Allen Academy to uncover:
  • What it looks like to move past content-focused and experience-based instruction to truly learner-centric learning
  • Discover the elements that make up “the whole learner experience” that we call “The Learner’s Journey”
  • Uncover practical “Learner’s Journey” instruction design strategies that can transform learning experience designs for maximum effectiveness and success
