Michael Canby

Learning Experience Design Associate

What I Do

I’m a Learning Experience Designer Associate at the Learning & Teaching Hub. I apply prevailing learning theory to design engaging, interactive courses that work with diverse learners. I also collaborate with faculty to foster a learning environment where students have the tools to be active and successful on their educational journeys.

What I Did

I have worked various jobs in manufacturing, services, and as a contractor for the ATF. I began my career at ASU in 2016 by helping students get their transfer work articulated.

What I Studied

I have a Master’s degree in History from ASU, a Bachelor’s degree in History from Shepherd University, and a Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design & Performance Improvement from ASU.

What I Like

I often find myself traversing dangerous worlds filled with monsters and magic (via video games & tabletop roleplaying games). I like to ponder the great mysteries of the universe over a cup of coffee. I also like to travel, create, hike, read, study languages, hang out with friends, and spend lots of time with my wife and my cat.

Favorite FSE Value

Favorite FSE Value

Foster a community of learning and collaboration! I see the concept of a community of learning and collaboration as the most powerful tool we have to solve the pressing problems of our time. When we foster this kind of community we come together, we collaborate, and we create. For me, that’s what life is all about. By collaborating with those of diverse backgrounds we gain new insights and enrich each other. I believe that is how a great team, a great university, and a great world is built.
