learning experience design

Learning experience design, or LXD, is an interdisciplinary approach that recognizes learning as an individual, collaborative, and collective construction of meaning. LXD is human-centered, and draws on learning science, instructional design, design thinking, and “designerly ways of knowing” (cognitive strategies used by expert designers). Using the synergies and frictions between these disciplines allows learning experience designers to be driven by empathy and science, recognize “wicked” design problems, express both problems and solutions metaphorically, constantly assess and re-frame design problems, and stay grounded in an iterative design cycle. The goal of LXD is no less than learning as becoming. LXD offers a more holistic approach than traditional instructional design, and is explicitly human-centered. Like user experience design, LXD starts with empathy and takes into consideration the context of the designed experience.
