Hello!

I am Alisha Mahen. As a teacher-turned-designer, centering learning experiences around learners’ needs has been at the heart of my work. My musings about whose voices are foregrounded and whose are left out in design processes began when I was a teacher, and motivated me to wade into the field of learning design. Now, having been formally trained in design research from the School of Visual Arts in New York, I strive to design with learners, rather than for them.

At Acumen, I have been using human-centered approaches to design learning experiences and materials for aspiring social entrepreneurs from across the globe - empowering them to create sustainable impact in their respective contexts.

Say hello any time – alisha.mahen@gmail.com
