Panel 2 Report
During panel 2 session, Katie Derthick and Jacob Fleisher talk about their own experience about user research, deign and personal suggestions for HCDE major.
Summarize what you learned about the ideation process that Jake discussed. What was one aspect of the project that stood out to you?
During Jake’s presentation, the most aspect of the project that stood out to me was he was asking about the definition and rules of Brainstorming. As I have learned before, the definition of brainstorming is a spontaneous group discussion to produce ideas and ways of solving problems and the rules for the brainstorming might be need everybody participation, build on other people’s ideas, don’t criticize other’s ideas and so on. However, when Jake explain the rules of brainstorming, he only use one word “weird”. The word really stood out to me mainly because I begin to think about how can I do the brainstorm well in the further days when I need some ideas.
Summarize what you learned about the user research that Katie did for her dissertation study. What was one aspect of the project that stood out to you?
Katie Derthick shared about her won experience for HCDE. She is a PHD candidate of UW department of HCDE. She also shared her studio pictures to us in order to let us understand more about how a user researcher or a designer work during daily time. The pictures are the most aspect of the project that stood out to me because in the picture the studio seem so full of “ideas”. From the pictures, I kind of understand how many ideas a designer have to have in order to creat a new thing.
Based on what you learned from these professional projects, how might you modify the work you did on your own sprints in these areas to improve them?
I will improve on doing brainstorming in the further sprints. I’m not lack of ideas but what I was doing was thinking the ideas very detail and be afraid to do the sketching. I like to do the sketching after I consider the different area of the project. After I learned from these professional projects, I think I will try my best to make my brainsorming become “weird” just like Jake said and try to make my room full of “ideas” just like Katie did.
