While I was researching and curating this episode, I wondered about my own professional training to become a learning designer. I don’t recall that there was much focus on the user, back then, only in very general ways. I guess it is the legacy of Steve Jobs to put the user at the center of attention in design processes.
Nowadays, it has become the norm, and a standard even a ‘no-brainer’ in the expectation of users. Over the years, I found my way step by step to put the learner at the center of my learning design activities and during presentations and training. And to me, it made my work more interesting and rewarding.
I hope this episode of the learning notes helps you find your way in the area of learner centered design.
