Big Question
Developing Experience Designers

What learning experiences and curricular formats effectively develop experience-centered designers who will create products based on peoples' physical makeup, cultural background, and emotional states?

Experience-centered design education goes beyond making great-looking design. It involves developing the whole person—a designer who speaks the language of holistic experiences. These designers can research and ask important questions like:

What’s really going on here?

What is the root cause of the problem?

How can my design best match peoples’ needs and preferences?

As a design educator, I’m always seeking ways I can develop learning experiences that will develop the knowledge, thinking, and skills necessary to create outcomes that consider the person’s whole experience.
