Learner Experience Design Symposium and Toolkit

About this Project

This project aims to bring staff and students with an expertise in design thinking from across the HE sector together to develop a shared language and knowledge around learner experience design. This community of practice will support the design and development of a toolkit to support staff and students involved in gathering learner experiences and co-creating new learner opportunities. Through a series of events including a symposium and monthly meetings we will provide an opportunity for colleagues to come together to share experiences, thoughts, and opportunities for collaboration.

Project Impact

Throughout this project, we will create a community of practice including colleagues from Warwick and beyond. Through a series of workshops, events and monthly meetings we will share experiences, ideas and cocreate a common language around learner centred design. We will engage in a holistic evaluation strategy to measure the impact of the project and identify areas for future developments.
