We’ve all been there or seen it in the wild...

Someone, somewhere, completely disengaged from their learning. How do we solve this common problem?

In this interactive digital workshop, you will team up with a virtual sidekick to solve the mystery of the learner’s disengagement. You’ll leave the session with a toolkit of approaches in how to design learning experiences that keep people curious & motivated.

vetr is very pleased to welcome Special Guest Cara North, Learning Experience Designer at The Ohio State University in the US, in this unique & compelling exploration of why learners disengage & how to support a high quality digital learning experience.
