융통성 있는 기반: 변화하는 분야에 대비한 디자인 학습자 교육

사용자 경험 분야는 끊임없이 진화하고 있기 때문에 디자인 교육은 움직이는 과녁처럼 느껴질 때가 많습니다. 디자인 프로그램은 기술과 방법론에 따른 고유한 기능과 디자인 “규칙”에 초점을 맞추기 보다는 학생들에게 융통성, 실험, 경계 확장, 문제에 관한 비판적 사고, 효과적인 소통을 가르치는 데 중점을 두어야 합니다. 학생들에게 일을 추진해가는 방식을 가르침으로써, 그러한 프로그램은 학생들의 역량을 강화하고 이 분야의 변화에 대비해 준비시킴으로써 장기적인 가치를 제공합니다.

    This is probably my favorite article that I have read on UXPA! Your flexible approach to solving problems is inspiring and your insight on the future of design really hit home for me as I am now entering a graduate program at Bentley University for Human Factors in Information Design.

    A question for you, how important is it for you to know the world of coding including HTML, Javascript, Python, or any others? Are there any programming languages you see as essential to success in this changing field?

      Hi Reed:
      Thanks for the kind words.

      I think it’s important for practitioners to have a good understanding of the general principles of coding. This will greatly help conversations where technical impact/constraints are being discussed. Basically, it gives you credibility and an entry into the conversation.

      As far as specific languages, I think it comes down to what type of role you’d like to go into and size of company. If you’re going into a large organization with very specialized roles–for example, let’s say user researcher–it may not be terribly critical. Whereas if you were walking into a 10-person ecommerce company, and you were the only designer/front-end developer, it would be pretty essential to know html/css et al.

      Best of luck with your studies!
