At the most recent Learning Design Meetup, we handed the agenda and content design over to our creative community. We asked them to bring reflections, explorations and learnings from the last 6-12 months and present them in Pecha Kucha format (20 images, 20 seconds per image) at the online Meetup.

Topics on offer in the call for brave Pecha Kucha-wranglers ranged from micro-credentials and co-design to inclusive practices, ‘green’ learning design and ‘why I want to be a learning designer when I grow up’. As you can see, our community didn’t disappoint, with five presenters stepping up from different faculties, departments and specialisms.

If you weren’t there, here’s a taste of what you missed!
