Are you an instructional designer/developer who wants to practice your skills in a casual, supportive environment? Do you strive to stay current? Do you want to connect with other designers locally? If so, come join us! We’ll do things like: • Share work and get constructive feedback from other professionals. • Discuss articles, books, or current projects. • Practice skills like storyboarding, action mapping, etc. • Evaluate learning experiences (e.g. testing a product and discussing what works, what doesn’t, and why). • Support job-finding through portfolio workshops and interview practice. • Cross-pollinate with related fields (e.g. UX Design, Psychology).
Not a learning experience designer? That’s okay! We also welcome those who: • Work with learning designers in some other capacity (project/program managers, UX designers, technical writers, educators). • Are interested in the field and want to learn more by talking with professionals.
