Students will practice testing prototypes via user testing workshops and practice receiving constructive feedback.
Obj 3: Students will practice on receiving feedback and integrating insights into prototype and codesign processes
Guiding Question: Why do we test our prototypes?
User Testing Workshop Part 1 & Part 2: (45 MIN)
- Groups 1/2/3 will run their 15-20 minute Prototype workshop with Group 4/5/6 as participants.
- After the workshop, groups 1/2/3 will have 5 minutes to wrap up activity internally.
- Groups 4/5/6/ will run their Prototype workshop with Groups 1/23 as participants.
- After the workshop, groups 4/5/6 will have 5 minutes to wrap up activity internally.
Purpose: Students will practice running Prototype workshops with stakeholders of interest utilizing codesign frameworks
Key Questions & Topics
User Testing / Insights
Why do we test our prototypes?
(not just solutions, but also additional user and problem statement insights)
How can one maximize the insight received during a User testing workshop?
Guiding Question: How do we understand and organize the insight we received during a User Testing workshop?
Class Reflection: (15-20 MIN)
- Students will share experiences running workshops and participating in the workshop.
- Potential Guiding Questions:
- What worked? What didn’t? (logistically and design-wise)
- What was surprising?
- What would you do differently or again?
- What would you consider changing if you were working with a different stakeholder?
- What do we do when we have conflicting feedback?
Purpose: Students hone information integration skills including idea organization and prioritization following codesign workshops. Students experience the nonlinear path of codesign processes.
Closing Activity (Reflection & Evaluation)
Guiding Question: How do we utilize feedback and insights effectively in codesign workshops?
Adjusting Prototypes: (25 MIN)
- After class discussion, students will go into breakout rooms where they will have the opportunity to reflect on the insights they received from their specific Prototype workshop.
- Students will work with their team to make adjustments of their working prototype and write a list of questions that they would ask their codesigners if they had the chance to do another user testing.
Purpose: Students practice receiving feedback and consciously integrating it into its working prototype. Students experience the nonlinear path of codesign processes.
Post Session Work Group Work: Students will finish and submit Core Activity and Closing Activity asynchronously ie. students will submit their edited prototype and plan for theoretical future user testing workshops.
