In this episode, I speak with three students in my inclusive design masters cohort. They share how they arrived at inclusive design and describe their major research projects. We talk about negative and challenging experiences we have had in formal education and explore ways it could be better. Topics discussed include personalized and experiential learning, disability, mental health, grading, and challenges facing international students.
