RVS Learning Design
Digital Design Lab
Learning online is still learning. We need to design learning so that every student is engaged and every student can be successful. When you move the learning online, new barriers and opportunities emerge. What we can’t lose sight of is the student. Our empathy is for the learner first, and the outcomes second. We’re taking our learning online to learn how to build community online, design powerful, and share high quality learning artifacts with each other. Choose a door below to get started.
