Learning Design Team

The basis of everything that happens in the tech and interactive media world is design; and it’s the same with education.

Wondering what sets learning at AIT apart from everywhere else? When we built our 3D animation courses at AIT, we ensured we had the best designers on the job. We have invested in an in-house Learning Design Team, a group of highly qualified educators and designers, making your course content engaging, accurate, current, intuitive and enjoyable.

Studying should feel seamless, and your focus should be on what you want to learn, not the tech functionality. We make sure this is apparent when you invest in AIT for your learning.
