Assumptions that Guide My Work
Every experience and environment is designed with a particular user in mind; 'neutral' and 'universal' designs do not exist.
Learners do not use their bodies in a vacuum and are constantly shaping and being shaped by the social world around them.
No learning is worth the cost of dehumanizing, (re)traumatizing, or shaming learners.

Rapid Iterative Testing & Evaluation
