UX in EdTech - Lightning Talks and Q&A (Collab with Boston EdTech Meetup)

For full details, including the address, and to RSVP see:

Ladies that UX Boston and Boston EdTech invite you to join us for an evening of lightning talks by three UX professionals currently working at different edtech companies. Each speaker will give a lightning talk on some of their recent work, highlighting challenges and lessons learned in designing products for students and educators. After all talks, we’ll bring the speakers together for a panel Q&A where attendees can ask questions related to their work, career, and anything UX related.

For those already in UX, we hope the event can shed light on some of the unique research and design challenges that exist when working with students and educators. For those interested in transitioning into UX or edtech, the event might be a good first step towards understanding what’s involved in creating effective products for different stakeholders in the education ecosystem.
