PAID EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITY with the eCampusOntario Student Experience Design (SXD) Lab
The eCampusOntario Student Experience Design (SXD) Lab is an innovation hub that tackles some of the most complex problems facing post-secondary education today. The focus is on student-led innovation. Why? Because students have historically been excluded from meaningful participation in the design and operation of the higher education system that exists to serve them.
This year, the SXD Lab is putting together a team of industrious students to help us explore new technology tools and solutions for higher education. We want to engage students early and ensure we are asking the right questions and implementing the right solutions to the right problems. As a design lab, our priority is to support the creation of purposeful and meaningful educational experiences. We do this by following practices and principles of human-centered design that show that systems work better when end-users are engaged as co-creators. This is the basic premise of user-centered design – proven for decades across industry.
