Your one-stop-shop for learning design projects large and small
We are an educational design agency based in Sydney, Australia.
Founded in 2018 by Xanthe Lawson (BA, Dip Ed, MA), we are now a close-knit team of highly experienced learning designers, educational technologists, digital media producers, videographers, and animators. Our breadth of experience makes us a one-stop-shop for learning design projects large and small. Our expertise in adult learning allows us to advise universities and corporations through each step of the training development process, from curriculum design and resource development to implementation and technical support.
In previous projects we have collaborated with local and international subject matter experts and organisations to develop educational and training programs in public health, medicine, science, micro-financing, prostate cancer nursing, vector surveillance and control, and modern slavery to name a few.
