Design Thinking for Immersive Learning

Professor Dr. Minjuan Wang
San Diego State University
Executive board member, the Immersive Learning Research Network


Abstract: Design Thinking, a widely used framework in entrepreneurship education, has made its way into learning design and training development. In this presentation, Dr. Wang will introduce Design Thinking and also illustrate how to use it to design engaging and immersive learning experiences from K-12 to Higher Education to training settings. She will also address the intersection of Design Thinking with Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework to design learning experiences for students with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. In addition, Dr. Wang will review the recently emerged XR (Cross-Reality) and immersive learning. She will focus on trends and issues related to XR and immersive learning, including the needs for global collaboration and design frameworks that can guide XR’s implementation in various settings of education.
