Strategies for Learner Experience Design focuses on strategies and tools to help designers create effective learning experiences that promote learner retention and application. Strategies discussed might include microlearning, interactive case studies, decision- making scenarios, spaced and guided practice, and short simulations -- all of which relate to the underlying concepts of conditional logic, variables, user and performance data, personalization, responsiveness, and universal design.Prerequisites: Graduate student status OR Instructor permission.
