Noni Korf

Director, Learning Experience Design & Media Design

Role: Noni leads the teams responsible for learning experience design and media design at AI (Academic Innovation). While Learning Experience Design may be a new term for some, she explains this as the process of designing educational experiences where the learner-centric aspects of instructional design are brought together with user experience design practices and insights from the behavioral sciences. Creating outstanding experiential learning opportunities for residential, online, global, and life-long learners motivates her, and especially so when these opportunities also involve experimentation, research, and diverse perspectives. The AI Media Team collaboratively develop visual, audio, and interactive story elements to support online learning experiences. Their understanding of how these elements support learning helps to guide the creation of rich media that serves multiple environments and experiences.

Experience: Prior to AI, Noni worked in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors of higher ed, focusing on experimentation in the digital space and innovative projects that spanned courses, software tools, collaborative environments, and student-facing resources. Her interests are in learning experience design, filmmaking, and intercultural communication. Prior to joining UM, her roles included Manager for Innovation Projects at Cornell University and Director of Instructional Technology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
