Meet our instructors
LUMA has developed our own team of world-class instructors to lead each live learning session. They are keenly tuned to business-related challenges and they lead the live learning sessions in a plain-language and practical way. Every instructor has deep experience using human-centered design in private settings. That allows them to bring LUMA methods to life through relevant stories and to share real-world examples of using design thinking to overcome particular challenges.
In addition, each member of the team is skilled in online instruction and remote technologies to ensure each participant receives an exceptional experience in every session.

Technology you'll need
We highly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer for this course. Mobile devices are not recommended.
Zoom video conferencing: LUMA Anywhere courses are conducted using Zoom video conferencing. This tool helps maximize participation in live learning sessions, with key features that enable visualization and collaboration. You can find more details about Zoom technical requirements below. As best practices to keep our meetings secure, each LUMA Anywhere session has a unique ID and is password-protected.

You don’t need a Google account to participate, but you do need to be able to follow a link to a Google Slides file and actively use Google Slides tools and functions. Learn more about Google Slides.
MURAL Edition: We occasionally offer sections of courses that use MURAL, a digital workspace for visual collaboration, instead of Google Slides for course activities and assignments. If you choose a MURAL section of a course, please ensure that you have a MURAL membership and basic proficiency using the platform before the course begins. To learn how to use MURAL, register for their free webinar, Introduction to MURAL.
