柔軟な基盤:変化する UX 分野に備え、デザイン学生を養成する

絶えず進化する UX 分野においては、デザイン教育というものがまるで「動く標的」のように感じられることもしばしばである。デザイン教育プログラムの主眼は、テクノロジーや方法論固有のスキル、あるいはデザインの「ルール」よりも、いかに柔軟性を養い、実験を重ねて限界を押し広げ、批判的思考によって問題を見極め、効果的なコミュニケーションをとるかを教えることに置かれるべきである。自らの仕事をいかに前進させるかを教え、UX 分野における変化に対する適応能力をはぐくむような教育プログラムは、学生に長期的な価値を提供するであろう。

    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!
