  • Have you shopped for a new TV or tried to choose a healthcare plan? What about making sense of a medical diagnosis or your taxes? In all areas of life, we are surrounded by understanding problems. We’re given far more information that we can process, but the tools to make sense of it all are stuck in the “computer-as-publishing-medium” era.

    In short, we’re given information, but not understanding.

    Design for Understanding will look at various ways you can help people make sense of confusing information. Bridging theory from cognitive sciences with dozens of practical examples, you’ll learn how to design rich, visual interactions that encourage people to play with and explore difficult concepts.
