User Experience Theory and Practices
Frederique de Jongh
UETP was a mandatory elective for the track RDD. If it hadn't been a mandatory part of the program I would have still chosen it to be able to get a better understanding of what user experience entails. I learned a lot of theory regarding the different aspects of user experience. I did think that during the assignments there was too much focus on the experience of digital interfaces. To get a better understanding of my UX vision and definition please look at my UX Portfolio.
In my understanding designers take into account a user’s experience during their design process, either to detect design opportunities, when designing the product/service or when they evaluate their designs. Therefore close collaboration and evaluation sessions with the target group is something I aimed to integrate within my design processes.
