What's in this episode?

Today's conversation with Darren Hood saw us explore the role of design in the learning experience. As a veteran UX/LX designer who made his first webpage in 1995, Darren eats, sleeps and breathes design, and that definitely came through. We touched upon the need for empathy and curiosity in educational design, the similarities between business and education UX, and even looked at the design of FeedbackFruits Tool Suite.
