Wondering how to design learning environments that engage millions of learners? Dr. Aaron Doering can show you how. Doering, professor of Learning Technologies and co-director of the Learning Technologies Media Lab (LTML) at the University of Minnesota, has taken online learning and design to a new level over the past decade through numerous of his initiatives. He will share with you the technology transformation principles behind many of the learning environments he and his team have designed, developed, and delivered around the world. Some of these projects include North of Sixty, Earthducation, WeExplore, and Geothentic.

When not at the LTML, Doering can often be found on the road collaborating with diverse cultures in remote regions of the globe while millions of learners engage virtually in these journeys online, giving talks, or writing his next book. He looks forward to exploring his design principles and educational philosophy with you in Singapore!
