Learning Experience Design Lead



DanChurchAid’s Learning Lab is a specialised team of 7-10 professionals with different fields of expertise and educational backgrounds. We are seeking a Learning Experience Design Lead with a unique skillset combination: inspiring facilitator of design processes, talented communicator and copywriter and passion for adult and blended learning processes. We have in our team at least one thing in common: we share a passion for learning, innovation and making a difference. Every project we do helps to change the lives of people in the poorest and most conflict-ridden countries in the world.
In this role, you will be able to apply and develop your talents within facilitation, communication and innovative capacity building. We envision that you have the drive and foresight to lead our learning designs to the next level by combining insights from e.g. design-thinking, learning theory, campaign methodologies, emerging technologies, nudging theory etc. In collaboration with team colleagues and involved stakeholders, you will facilitate conceptual and didactical development of learning experiences. You will need to be comfortable in an experimenting environment with space for innovation and prototyping, “fail fast” mentality, creativity and less focus on procedures and predictability. Openness and the ability to embrace and engage in change and feedback processes will be essential for you to be successful. You will need the ability to participate actively in discussions and explore and challenge your own and others’ ideas and views. It should be natural for you and motivating to bring the right stakeholders together and transform ideas into specific and valuable prototypes and projects.
Our team is dynamic, ambitious and collaborative – we support and advance the capacity development of frontline humanitarian and development professionals and we empower vulnerable groups directly through capacity development and innovative (blended) learning solutions. We work across our organisation (HQ and country offices) and within ACT Alliance, but we also work with many external partners. We constantly seek new inspiration and test new methods and technologies to ensure that we deliver high-quality solutions based on innovative thinking, learner-centred design and evidence-based analysis. Our ambition is to be cutting-edge in efficient and effective learning experiences, independent of locality that ranges from European capitals and strategic organisational learning to a small conflict-ridden village in Syria. Our work varies between highly interactive real-time trainings in Adobe Connect, face-to-face trainings, interactive digital courses, simulation games, virtual reality, chat bots and interactive smartphone-based courses aimed at refugees and strategizing organisational learning ecosystems and modalities into the organisations we work with. 
Your key responsibilities in this position include:
  • Facilitating learning design processes together with end-users, subject matter experts, project leads, interaction designers, external partners and the communities we seek to assist.
  • Developing concepts into inspiring and motivating written/visual learning resources
  • (Depending on experiences and interests) Leading our approach to learning experience designs
  • Being a key explorer and contributor to our learning innovation agenda and team development
  • Project Management of learning projects, incl. portfolio management
  • Linking capacity-building effort with strategic organisational learning
  • Opportunities to use other relevant talents that can move us forward. 

For this position, we expect:

  • 5+ years of proven experience with facilitation of design processes, digital/written communication and development of learning designs and resources
  • An inspiring digital communicator and copywriter (SoMe-experience desirable) with high proficiency in written English. Experience with copywriting for various formats and audiences. A working knowledge of Danish, Spanish, Arabic or French will be an advantage.
  • Confidently applying didactical and adult pedagogical concepts and knowledge and ability to create a blended learning design with analogue and digital learning activities – alternatively a significant motivation to move in this direction.
  • Relevant education and proven project management experiences and ability to navigate in an innovative and ever-changing environment with many stakeholders and need for cultural sensitivity
  • Travel of approximately 2-3 weeks annually
  • Advantage: Experience from the development and humanitarian sector
  • Advantage: Experience with Moodle/Adobe Connect/Storyline/Adapt, video production, Adobe software, virtual reality and chat bots.
