Course Overview

The desire to develop solutions to the challenges we face is intrinsic within us as humans. However, with an overflow of data generated daily, solutions are often developed that exclude certain groups or may not be based on the critical needs people have. An increased focus on the context of our solutions, however, can lead us as we develop human-centered products, ventures, and services. But how do we establish that context? Is it through the data or the tech we use? The processes we establish? Or does it come directly from those who have experienced these problems?
