Education is transformative, and great educative experiences have the capacity to impact the learner, to develop their capacities and shape their belief in themselves.


In this course, you will learn how learning designers think, how they design activities and create courses that keep students at the centre of the design and amplify the learning experience. In this course you will learn from Curio’s industry-leading team, with detailed, interactive activities to help you understand the role of a Learning Designer, how a Learning Designer fits within a learning ecosystem, what theories and ideas drive great learning and how to create exceptional learning yourself. The learning activities for this course are designed to replicate real-world tasks you will be asked to complete as learning designers.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be accredited by Curio in Learning Design with a badge.
