MAAL. Development of a master's program in UX and AAL

Challenge

E-Health and Ambient Assisted Living are areas of technology which enable us to live a longer and independent life in our own homes. However, there are only a few training opportunities - which greatly delayed the market development.

Approach

Within project MAAL YOUSE initially raises the needs of future students - per survey, secondary analysis and interviews. Based on the findings a curriculum is developed. Besides that YOUSE developed the module "User-centered design".

Outcome

A degree program, which according to evaluation exceeds all expectations, and takes the real needs of students into consideration.
