Services

We help you identify, accelerate and create new ways to learn and grow. We provide a spectrum of support for faculty, staff, and students to conceptualize learning, teaching, and programmatic opportunities and develop solutions through our learning experience design, online program management, educator development, culture change, innovation workshop, and design sprint services.

Leveraging methods and insights from design, learning experience design, systems thinking, curriculum theory, educational research, and futures thinking, we help project partners across MSU design and deliver more valuable learning experiences. Below, you’ll find more details about the services and methodologies we leverage to create a project uniquely suited to your needs.

 

Learning Experience Design

We help you design learning experiences. We’ll help you understand learners, map the experience, prototype and test the experience, and create a plan for success and sustainability.

 

Online Program Management

We help you navigate the online program management landscape. From market analysis to vendor relationships, to budgeting, we’ll provide guidance on the essentials for developing your program. You’ll emerge ready to realize and sustain new opportunities.

 

Culture Change

We help you create the conditions for growth and change you’d like to see in your program. We provide a variety of facilitated sessions to help with team alignment, strategic planning, change management, and learning and development for long-term transformation.

 

Innovation Workshops

We help you unleash the capacity of your teams. We offer workshops in design, facilitation, and team building to tap the resources you already have and to channel those resources in new ways. We can create a customized workshop experience to meet you where you are.

 

Design Sprints

We help you move quickly and thoughtfully to explore the opportunities in front of you. Originally launched by Google Ventures, the Design Sprint provides a five-day process for your team to shift their work, go deep on a problem they want to solve, prototype a solution, and test that prototype with users before the week is done. Design sprints provide key insights for solving complex challenges and a powerful team-building opportunity. We can facilitate sprints focused on your strategy, process, research, and culture.

 

Educator Development

Our educator development services focus on helping educators (faculty, graduate TAs, staff, et al.) build the practices essential to provide transformative learning experiences. We provide educator development through programming, learning communities, consulting, and more formal workshops and courses to help you grow in teaching.
