The Design of Learning Experience

Title: The Design of Learning Experience

Author: Brad Hokanson

2015 | pages: 296 | ISBN: 3319165038
The Design of Learning Experience: Creating the Future of Educational Technology

This book delves into two divergent, yet parallel themes; first is an examination of how educators can design the experiences of learning, with a focus on the learner and the end results of education; and second, how educators learn to design educational products, processes and experiences. The book seeks to understand how to design how learning occurs, both in the instructional design studio and as learning occurs throughout the world. This will change the area’s semantics; at a deeper level, it will change its orientation from instructors and information to learners; and it will change how educators take advantage of new and old technologies. This book is the result of a research symposium sponsored by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology [AECT].
