Last year I gave a talk (thank you Niels!) on the Learning Experience Conference ’17, for the University of Leiden. There I presented my DIY Learning Journey map, for professionals who are working for the education market. The printouts where all gone, and there were people asking questions afterwards. On this event lxcon ’17, the talk opened my eyes. Opportunity’s in the field education and designing it. What design methods can be used, in such a way, that educational designers can use it?
At the Education Design Expedition 2018, organised by Fontys Education Designers (FED), educators around the country came together to create the learning journey for their program. 3 days of hard work by learning and doing. Using Design Thinking methods to understand and most important to create how it could work.
At these two events I met people who are professional teachers, educators, online educators, coaches, trainers, and many more. To hear their challenges and needs were very worth full for me, in my question to find out how can I as designer contribute in creating the best education experience there is?
