Build better learning spaces in weeks
The 8-week Design for Learning Environments short courses are a fast-track route for professionals keen to focus on one particular aspect of instructional and learning design – a market set to triple in growth between 2015 and 2025.2
Each course offers a cross-section of core skills and knowledge from design, technology, education, the social sciences, data science and digital development. Modules are led by academics and practitioners from education, computer science, theoretical physics and engineering. All are designers of learning environments and bring their own unique disciplinary perspectives to the programme.
With practical exercises and assessment, you can put new ideas and approaches to the test straight away when designing effective learning experiences in any setting – online, offline and blended.
These interdisciplinary skills and knowledge are attractive to employers in any sector involved in designing learning environments. By carrying out design activities and analysing existing designs, you will quickly build a portfolio of work to showcase your diverse expertise.
Enrolling in any of these courses will give you access to the same learning experiences as the full PGCert. The Design for Learning Environments short courses are also a great way to get a flavour of the PGCert, while allowing you to focus on the elements you need to support your career goals. If you choose to pursue all 60 credits of the PGCert later, any course credits you’ve earned will count towards the full qualification.
