URC Brown Bag Series: User-Centered Design for Instructors


Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 12:00pm


Virtual - Zoom (Registration Required)

Join us for User-Centered Design for Instructors presented by Amy Deschenes and Emily Coolidge-Toker.


In this workshop participants will learn how to apply content strategy and user-centered design practices to learning objects. Learning objects include deliverables like handouts, slide decks, videos, webpages, Canvas modules, Libguides, and others. Participants will leave the workshop with a concrete action plan for creating an effective learning object. 

To participate you can either bring a new project you’re working on or you’ll help out a fellow participant with their project. During the workshop you’ll learn about user-centered design techniques. Then, you’ll work in break-out rooms with a team to develop content goals, user stories, and learning goals for either your own or another participant’s project. 

At the end of the session you’ll have a game plan for a learning object, and be able to successfully apply user-centered design strategies to future learning object development.
