    EP. 05 - Positive framing in Learning Design

    In this episode, we chat to LearnJam's Learning Designer, Katy Asbury. Katy tells us the story of a particularly horrendous hike that she did in New Zealand and how, subsequently, she was able to reframe that from a really negative experience to one of the absolute highlights of her year. She shares her thinking and reading around what positive framing might mean for Learning Design.

    EP.04 - Design thinking

    In this episode, we talk about design thinking; what it is, how it works, and how we use it in our own projects, including how we applied it to develop a prototype of a chatbot that the world wasn't ready for. We also talk about how Tim had to go back to school to learn empathy and how mirrors can solve the problem of slow elevators.

An informative chat about topics rarely covered

Good to hear this subject more widely discussed. Would like to hear about how teachers can apply learning design methods in the classroom in the future.
