Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) Professor Beth Kolko recently spoke at the 10 Conference, which took place in Leavenworth, Washington, from September 26 through today. 10 Conference is centered around ten conversations by and to a community of "global thought leaders and extraordinary innovators."

Kolko's presentation focused on Hackademia and "how outsiders are hacking the system and generating new insights into how people learn." Kolko says that non-experts innovate because they work outside known boundaries of a problem space.
