This week on the GoodPractice Podcast, we’re continuing our discussion around ‘design thinking’ with a focus on complexity. How can we make the complicated simple? Should this always be our objective? And can we prepare people for chaos?
Learning design guru Julie Dirksen returns to the podcast to share her experiences with Ross G and Owen.
