How can French cooking methods improve the safety of your car? Why can’t you just settle on what movie to watch on Netflix? Why do you have to sign a credit card receipt for a pack of gum?

9: Education 👩🎓 User Experience – Students
It’s not uncommon for us to ignore the impact of poor UX on our daily routine. A poorly designed app might make us miss a bus. A poorly designed door might make us look foolish. Often the effort required to right the wrong outweighs the cost. But in the case of education, a poorly designed experience has left millions of students disenfranchised, the nation with $1.5 Trillion in growing student loan debt, and employers with under-qualified candidates in the workforce. In this episode, we speak with four influencers who are fighting the battle on all fronts. In Discovery, they describe a problem that stretches from primary school, thru college, and right into the workplace. In Definition, we’ll isolate the players and their challenges. And finally, in Ideation, we’ll look at some ways to improve the UX of education in the future.

A lot of b.s.ing
Listened to the medical/healrh podcast...i dont mean to be harsh but you all sounded way out of your depth, often contradictory observations or naive about the domain . Also its criticsl to include digging into the consequences of design not just the “ “wouldnt be cool”. And no it wouldn’t be cool if tech removed the need to get to know a patient and, yearly bloodwork IS important and dudes: think about the medsage behind the message: zip code is the most important health factor?
