    17. Please Rate Your Experience

    Experiences are hard to define. Sure, we can describe them: good or bad, memorable or bland, rated on a scale from one to five. Many people are exploring the frontiers of the experience economy with increasing intensity: customer experience, user experience, employee experience, learner experience, and so on. Yet human experience, which is a product of our consciousness itself, remains elusive. The full article is available here, on our blog.

    16. What's The Problem

    16. What's The Problem

    People have opinions. We like to question things, whether we say it out loud, under our breaths, or keep it bottled up inside. It can be harder to know where opinions come from, or where they might lead us.

    In our minds, we employ a version of the scientific method: We observe, ask questions, create a theory. We’re not always rigorous about it. The data aren’t incomplete and we don’t always test our hypothesis. We don’t reflect on the evidence. Suspicion about motives leads to conspiracy theories and confirmation bias deepens our resolve.

    To make a bigger difference, we need to find the right problem. Work to get out of our normal opinions, bias, and culture. Follow a process and look for guides. Our opinions are vital, but we need to know where we are and how we got there in order to map where we're going. The full article is available here, on our blog.

    13. UX Principles at Work

    Built environments are places made by people that support human activity and part of everyday experience in our modern world. Physical, digital, or hybrid experiences are part of what’s next. The future may echo the past but is forged in the present.

    Maturing concepts in digital design are a helpful source of input. As we better understand user behavior and experience, the fields of UX and interaction design offer a new foundation for the built environment – both physical and virtual. The full article is available here, on our blog.

    12. Unbundling Education

    Education is at a crossroads. Students, parents and everyone else feels it. One way to innovate is to unbundle and repackage offerings into new categories where people derive the most value. It can be hard to think this way given how we typically think about higher education, but it’s already happening in nearly every other industry.

    In the coming years, or perhaps months, many higher education institutions will be pressured to make important choices about their future, helping to reframe the ways we advance our skills, networks, and thinking. The full article is available here, on our blog.
