Get hands-on experience by designing a course using the groundbreaking DOMS™️ framework
Access a design process & set of design practices developed over 20+ years
Leave with a course design + the tools you need to optimise every design for learner engagement, impact & joy
Get active in the community: choose the course you'd like to design, get to know the DOMS™️ Playbook & your personal LSB Work Book and start to get to know me & your cohort.
3 x 2 hr design sessions, during which we will work through the DOMS™️ process & design our courses, together.
A week to refine your storyboard, prepare you showcase presentation & get feedback from me & the community & access drop in support.
A final, live showcase event where we will be joined by an expert guest from the world of learning design to give feedback, kudos & celebrate our achievements.
I and the rest of the cohort will be active in the community to take questions, give feedback & hold one another to account.
All resources will be available from July 11th, so you can complete all prep around your schedule.
During the ramp-up we will use our dedicated community space to:
📆 When: July 11th - July 18th
📚 Async Effort: ~60 mins
⏰ Live Ramp-Up Meet-Up: Thursday July 14th, 6-7 PM BST
Robust discovery is critical to high impact learning design. In our first working session, we'll explore the what, why & how of great course discovery (Vygotsky, Mayer et al) & run a real discovery process for our chosen course design.
📚 Async Prep: ~30 mins
⏰ Live Working Session: July 19th, 6-8 PM BST
🚢 Ship: A design brief & course promo
Next, we'll use my ABC Framework based on the work of Mager, Merriam, Van Merriënboer et al to turn our design briefs into a sequenced set of high-leverage outcomes which optimise for student engagement & impact.
📚 Async Prep: ~30 mins
⏰ Live Working Session: July 20th, 6-8 PM BST
🚢 Ship: A killer set of course outcomes & high-level course map
In our final, we'll use easy-to-apply principles from the DOMS™️ Playbook to make robust, evidence-based decisions about content, activity & assessments to hit outcomes & optimise for engagement & impact.
📚 Async Prep: ~30 mins
⏰ Live Working Session: July 21st, 6-8 PM BST
🚢 Ship: A v.1 of a best-in-class course storyboard
During the design week we will refine our storyboards & create a 3-minute design presentation to present back at the showcase & graduation event. Throughout, you can connect with me & the cohort in the community for feedback & support.
📆 When: July 21st - 28th
📚 Async Work: ~90 mins
🚢 Ship: A stellar course storyboard & showcase presentation
At a final event, we'll present our designs to the cohort + a guest learning design expert & get feedback & kudos in a safe & supportive environment.
After the event, with your permission, we will share designs on social media to celebrate your work.
⏰ Live Event: July 29th, 6-8 PM BST
🚢 Ship: An eyes light up course design & presentation

Hello 👋 I’m Phil and I’m obsessed with a wicked problem. Millions of people designed & delivered online learning experiences in the last decade, transforming education as we know it...but there’s a problem: online learning is broken.
"We understand how humans learn, but translating this understanding into a set of principles & frameworks for online course design is incredibly challenging."
Through 20+ years of research & experimentation at the intersection of pedagogy & education technology, I have developed the DOMS™️ Learning Design Framework - a new way to design learning experiences which makes it easy to apply learning science to learning design practices.
More About Me:
⇨ Founder @ Palo > building the world’s first design product for learning experience designers
⇨ Co-Founder @ Plot > developing a design process which 10Xs the speed & impact of instructional design
⇨ Post-doc Researcher @ Cambridge University > digital pedagogy & learning science
⇨ Former VP Learning @ Aula > led the world’s largest & most successful digital learning design projects which impacted the outcomes of thousands of learners
⇨ Former Chief Academic Officer @ Construct > designed hundreds of digital learning experiences, including Oxford University’s first & most successful MOOC
The learning science bootcamp is intense & hands-on by design. We'll learn by doing, working through each step of the DOMS™️ framework together as a team.
