Why this LX Conference?


Anyone who designs and provides learning experiences is increasingly dealing with more technology, more opportunity but also more complexity. What does learning design mean in the age of mentoring, gamification and personalisation? Is an online course always the answer? It can be a real challenge to ensure you design an experience that suits your learners while at the same time not falling into the trap of just “doing what we’ve always done.” To cope with this, we are seeing a new hybrid practice emerge, learning experience design (LX Design). Design thinking and user experience design are just two new skills that learning experience designers need, says Dr. Jess Knott, LXer Extraordinaire. This conference will provide starting points for those skills and more.
