Title
Reading + Typography: Improving Comprehension for Students

Description
While reading is arguably a student’s most important skill, the technology of reading is relatively unchanged. What can be done to improve a student’s reading comprehension? Kevin will discuss what has been learned about typography in the last 500 years, about reading psychology in the last 100 years, and what technology can be invented right now. This talk is geared toward current Design majors.

Speaker
Kevin Larson works for Microsoft’s Advanced Reading Technologies team. He collaborates with type designers, reading psychologists, and engineers on improving the onscreen reading experience. Kevin holds a PhD for studies of reading acquisition.
