In this edition of the LXD Meetup, we will be showcasing 4 projects and tackling their learning design challenges head on, in teams, using a new tool created by ELTjam as our guide, called the ELTjam way*. Over the course of the evening, you will use a practical canvas to tackle one of these live learning design challenges:

Square Circle is a new future work agency that helps employers learn from and hire underestimated young people. Employers purchase learning experiences delivered by young inclusion consultants. How can they train their young consultants to be effective learning designers - in just a day?

Live Forwards aims to become an organisation that brings healthcare technology together with learning design. They want to use learning design to support people living with a mental or physical health condition to live their best and fullest life.

Telescope is an insights and collaboration programme linking the policy and social sectors. They want your help to design and develop an insights training programme for policymakers: to ensure they forge meaningful and sustainable relationships with frontline workers.

Agent You design and run adventures that help young people (aged 15 - 35) figure out what might be next in their life and career. These are usually, but not exclusively, nature and wilderness based. They want your help to design a new adventure that will help young people find new perspectives and momentum. Adventures might be long, short, online, offline or somewhere in between.

The evening will involve collaboration and you'll leave with inspiration, a practical tool you can use, and some experience in applying this approach to purpose-driven learning challenges. Plus you’ll be adding real value to a live project, helping them accelerate their impact!

*The ELTjam Way document set out to codify what we know about learning, and offer a practical framework for educators to use when designing learning. From our review of research we conclude that, at its heart, successful learning involves just three interrelated factors:
• Connecting new knowledge to existing knowledge
• Repeated, meaningful practice over time.
• Optimal cognitive and emotional conditions for learning
