Learning Design


Learning Designers facilitate the exploration, design, and development of blended and online learning opportunities, including the use of MyUni and related learning technologies.

We have expertise in designing effective and innovative student learning experiences.

We deliver this through direct consultation, structured co-design workshops, presentations, and informal adhoc conversations. We take a collaborative approach, and act as connectors between academic staff in faculties and LEI services and initiatives. Together, we create consistent, quality and relevant learning experiences for University of Adelaide students.

We can assist with:

  • Constructive alignment
  • Course design/redesign
  • Learning activity design
  • Assessment design
  • Course design evaluation

Design for People
