Join us to explore the idea of the attention-comprehension gap, which is an approach to information design that focuses on creating a balance between drawing user attention to specific content and their comprehension of that content.

We will introduce how to create methods of assessing usability based on balancing these aspects of gaining user attention and assuring comprehension of information in a way that facilitates the effective design of different materials.
