Join us Thursday, May 10 to hear Angela Wang, adjunct faculty at the University of Minnesota, discuss how user experience methodology is being incorporated into her course, GDes 2385: Design and Factors of Human Perception. Angela will walk us through the teachings of the course including the process, methods, and evaluation techniques. To help you integrate this information into your own projects, her presentation will showcase the course’s focus: a final group project with an outside client, which enabled students to apply their lessons in a real-world setting. Students from Spring 2011 and Spring 2012 courses will share their final design projects, offering insight into the lessons learned during the semester. This session will also advance your 'forward thinking' skills as you learn about future directions for UX curriculum at the U of M.
