Skills / Lessons Learned:
Navigating the complexities of designing immersive learning systems, there is a nuanced interplay between the distinct needs and inherent capabilities of neurodiverse learners. My talk is a reflective journey through the myriad of projects I have spearheaded, all with the intention of enhancing the educational experiences of autistic and other neurodivergent learners. It's crucial to recognize instances where our systems may have fallen short in capturing the authentic experiences of our users. These instances, while sometimes disheartening, have been critical in shaping our design processes, ensuring that the learner's voice and experience remain at the forefront. As we continue to innovate, our steadfast aim is to develop immersive educational environments that not only connect with but also elevate neurodiverse learners. This talk is a call to action for both students and faculty to engage, collaborate, and contribute to the evolution of a truly inclusive educational paradigm.
