How Do the Extra Creative Elements Included in My Course Help Learning?

One of the components of my classes that I believe to be important, is that I aim to reduce the amount of slides that I use in my lessons, as much as possible. This is because I find that the use of slides in a presentation or training course is quite mundane, and lacks the quality engagement  needed to keep trainees focused, and stimulated. Besides that, they are not as effective in teaching and achieving the learning outcomes of a course, contrary to what many believe. Instead, I put an emphasis on creating materials that puts a strong emphasis on user experience and optimal learning design. 

In approaching the design of my courses in this way, I strive to achieve: 

πŸš€ Memorable and comprehensible content. 

πŸš€ Creative and innovative learning.

πŸš€ Informative and intelligible discussions. 

And in order to achieve these course objectives, my courses typically include: 

πŸš€ Meaningful discussions and group-work activities.. 

πŸš€ Practical case studies for trainees to apply their knowledge and skills. 

πŸš€ Road mapping and colourful illustrations. 

πŸš€ Opportunities for trainees to generate new ideas or solutions on problems or situations, and/or showcase their own perspective on a topic.

Why User Experience Is A Priority 

One of the main reasons for why User Experience is a top-priority in my courses is because I have found that it directly affects the success of a product or service. In addition, it also helps to boost customer retention, since customers are more likely to continue using a product or service when they have had a positive experience with it. I therefore prioritise the User Experience of all my training courses, because I want to keep my customers coming back, and because I have found that long-term commitment and perseverance towards learning something new is what leads to the most success.

Optimal User Experience in a course can thus be achieved by: 

πŸš€ Understanding the needs and expectations of your users. 

πŸš€ Designing intuitive and user-friendly interfaces. 

πŸš€ Gathering feedback continually, and making improvements upon it. 

The benefits of prioritising user experience are:

πŸš€ Increased customer satisfaction. 

πŸš€ Retention. 

πŸš€ Business growth. 

Approaching my courses in this way has not only assisted me in better serving my students, but has also helped me and trainees understand the role and importance of the client in Agile Product Development. And for this reason, I am not shy to have an open-discussion about how I too use the three pillars of transparency, inspection, and adaptation when creating and designing Agile and Scrum training courses.
