As educators, the focus of our design decisions is the learning experience. As librarians, we know that the learning experience outside the classroom is as important as the learning experience inside the classroom. Designing for inclusion requires that we consider the continuum of the library learning experience from signage, to computer, to classroom, and that we embrace access to enhance user experience. Join us for an informal discussion of learning experience design (LDX), user experience design (UXD), and diversity, equity, and inclusion design (DEI) within the context of the library.
