Technology Validation in Real-World Environments and Design Thinking Solutions
Published: October 2021
This course discusses ecologically momentary assessment methodologies to evaluate the real-life benefit of present and emerging technologies impacting hearing health and describe the advantages and limitations of the novel methodology. The second half will introduce design thinking and how this human-centered process has been applied to create a solution to help people with hearing difficulties understand conversations better, reduce frustration, and improve communication.
- After this course, participants will be able to describe the main motivators behind ecological momentary assessment (EMA) solutions to determine real world evidence of existing and emerging technologies.
- After this course, participants will be able to describe the key differences between laboratory and real-world assessment with EMA.
- After this course, participants will be able to name four main components of design thinking and why they are important when creating impactful solutions.
