User experience theory and practice
This course provided a comprehensive exploration of user experience (UX), having to make an essay/portfolio, a manifesto, and a group project. My key takeaway is a nuanced understanding of UX as a broad term, shaping my perspective on it. I believe that the shift from an experience-based to a knowledge and transformation-based economy has redefined UX design, emphasizing a move from individual-focused experiences to addressing complex societal issues. In my own approach, I advocate for the integration of empathy, cooperation, and theories like the Theory of Reasoned Action, Theory of Planned Behaviour, and social translucence. This allows me to align UX with broader societal goals and actively contribute to large-scale transformations. Additionally, the course equipped me with the skill of crafting manifestos to articulate and communicate my design principles.
