What's this Playbook about?


This Playbook is a guide for CSC's learning & development (L&D) Specialists and training partners to understand and apply Learning Experience Design (LXD) concepts in their training interventions. Whether you are new to L&D or an experienced practitioner in this field, there is something here to inspire you to design engaging learning experiences. 


What is Learning Experience Design?

"LXD is the process of creating learning experiences that enable the learner to achieve the desired learning outcome in a human-centered and goal-oriented way."

Niels Floor, LXD Pioneer

Neils Floor's conceptualisation of LXD incorporates key design principles from multiple disciplines such as interaction, user experience, graphic, and game designs. Watch this 3-min video to get a glimpse of LXD.

LXD Intro

In a nutshell, LXD is about...


  1. Learning
    LXD is more about crafting an experience, less about learning materials, classroom instruction, methods, and technology.

  2. Human centeredness
    Put the learner at the core of your learning design process. Seek first to understand what drives their intrinsic motivation. 

  3. Being goal-oriented
    Begin with the end in mind by formulating clear learning outcomes. Then use them as a basis to decide on the learning modalities, design of learning activities, and the choice of technology.
