Exploring the big picture of a learning environment as an integrated system of physical, digital and social environments. Breaking it down into small low-risk actionable steps for improvement.
An interview with James Boekbinder, an expert in User Behaviour & Interaction Design. He is an outspoken advocate for ‘the shape of a successful product is hiding inside human behaviour’. James advises organisations preparing for innovation of their product and service systems.
Besides being a self-employed consultant, he teaches about these subjects at a couple of universities for about 12 years now. Experiencing how it feels to work in a (sub)optimal learning environment. (http://www.boekbinder.com) He shares with us his professional insights.
As expected, the central area of improvement is in the social domain of human behaviour. About ambitions, politics, willingness to change, leadership in balancing the quality of education and financial constraints. James gives us an insider view behind the curtains of the daily reality at a university. He translates this into guiding design principles that can strengthen the learning environment.
