Instructional Design Scholar, Practitioner & Educator
My name is Ahmed Lachheb, and I'm a Learning Experience Designer (LXD) at the University of Michigan's Center for Academic Innovation. I hold a Ph.D. in Instructional Systems Technology—with a minor in Human-Computer Interaction & Design— from Indiana University Bloomington, a master's in Educational Technology from Grand Valley State University, and a BA in English Language, Literature and Civilization from the University of Sfax, Tunisia.
I'm an experienced and internationally award-winning designer, educator, and scholar. My work experience spans over a decade in higher education, government, corporate and non-profit settings. My work portfolio includes learning design for online, blended, face-to-face environments, faculty training, organizational training, media development, higher education, consulting, and research on design. I design, develop, implement, and evaluate effective solutions in diverse contexts using three languages (Arabic, English & French).
My design practice and my passion for instructional design are what drive my research work on design practice. My design, research, practice, and teaching work occurs acrosses multiple design disciplines, including human-computer interaction, instructional design and technology, design theory and education, and public health. I am a father, I love to cook and bake, and I always find pleasure in meeting design challenges.
