Autumn seminar on Learning Experience (LX) - 22.10.2020 at 12-15

Learning experience has become even more central for people working with education and training as work has become increasingly digitized. How do we design meaningful learning experiences where in addition to the good user experience the user is also capable to learn? What factors are in play and what are the viewpoints of different stakeholders?

These topics will be discussed in our autumn seminar this year. The seminar is arranged online via Zoom and it is held in English.

The event is held on Thursday 22.10.2020 at 12:00-15:00. The seminar is arranged in cooperation with the MA program in technical communication at the University of Vaasa.
