Title: Using Technology to Create Meaningful, Relevant Learning Experiences
Keynote Lecturer: David Guralnick
Presented on: 23/04/2017, Porto, Portugal
Abstract: When designing online learning, we often lead with considerations such as the following: Does the course include the right content? Is it sequenced well? Are learning events spaced appropriately? These are all worthwhile questions, but I'd argue that they're only part of the story of successful learning initiatives. Perhaps as significant is whether a learner connects emotionally with the overall learning experience. I suggest that we can make use of technological advances to help us create learning experiences that learners appreciate and connect with. In this session, I'll discuss ways in which we can make use of new (and not-so-new) technologies to better design experiences that resonate with learners. I'll explore user experience design, situated learning, and potential uses of new technologies, among other things, all in the context of the design of effective educational experiences.
