Researchers in learning sciences are pioneering instructional technologies that have the capacity to revolutionize the educational system. By combining design thinking methodology with strong theoretical frameworks in the learning sciences, educators can improve learning to help students thrive.

This book lays out the intersection between theory, design and reflective practice to help educators understand individual learner differences and the impact of context upon learning. With this foundation, you will develop the skills you need to design powerful and effective learning experiences, particularly when using digital technologies.

Topics covered include:

  • Educators as learning designers
  • Shaping experiences for digital age learning through digital media and digital environments
  • Design and format of educational interventions
  • The role of reflective practice and evaluating the impact on student learning

Throughout the text, the authors emphasize the “why” behind the use of technology and the “how” to enact learning design for all digital age learners

Our summer cohorts will have a mix of synchronous and asynchronous work. Synchronous experiences will include guided discussions with leading experts.

This four week cohort will consist of: 

  • 4 synchronous sessions (June 2, 9, 16, 23)
  • 4 hours of asynchronous work per week

*Applicable to Teacher, Coach and Admin

Illinois educators can earn up to 16 PDHs for participating in this cohort.
