811 Creating Experiences from Concept to Launch with Design Thinking

3:15 PM - 4:15 PM ET
Tuesday, November 8

Learning teams may struggle with balancing projects, resources, and audience needs, leading to multiple challenges in design, quality, and usefulness to the learner audience. Will we ever design a better way to create great experiences in learning? What if there were a simple process for defining, imagining, and developing concepts with feedback before starting development?

Using design thinking with Agile principles can help your team ideate, visualize, test, and gather feedback to create an iterative process that will improve your audience’s results. With most of us working remotely, we can apply this vision to create amazing learning experiences focusing on agility, flexibility, adaptability, and individuals. Starting with a need, a concept, or a current implementation, we’ll share how to evaluate, design, and gather feedback to decide how you can best help your audiences.

In this session, we’ll break down the steps needed to help you discover how to brainstorm effectively, test, gather feedback, and design quickly with collaboration to transform your experiences. You’ll learn about practical apps, tools, and techniques to create a workflow that focuses on your audience. Finally, we’ll look at resources and provide the following steps so that you can implement them immediately after the event.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The five steps of design thinking
  • Practical examples, resources, and apps that will unlock each step
  • How to utilize collaborative apps to reach a new level of creativity
  • How to use feedback within each step to level up your learning experiences
  • Dozens of apps and resources to apply on your upcoming projects
  • Ways you can update your process to take advantage of the magic of design
