Augmented Humanity: Wrong Theory Protocol

Dr. Vanessa Svilha

This hour-long episode of Augmented Humanity will be preempting No More Normal on Sunday 12/6, 11a.

Dr. Vanessa Svihla, author of Wrong Theory Protocol, is an associate professor in the University of New Mexico’s  Organization, Information & Learning Sciences program and in the School of Engineering, where she is a special assistant to the Dean. Dr. Svihla is a learning scientist, whose research focuses on how people learn when they design. In 2018 she received the National Science Foundation CAREER award to study how people develop agency not just to solve problems, but to frame and reframe them. We talk about how Wrong Theory Protocol can result in better design.

Augmented Humanity is a program of the New Mexico Humanities Council, produced in partnership with KUNM-FM. You can find out more about the programs at NMHumanities.org. Theme music courtesy James Whiton and production assistance from Tristan Clum.
