  • Critical Thinking for UX Designers (Or Anyone, Really)

    by Russ U and Christina Wodtke

    Love creative problem solving, but need something more practical - something specific to User Experience? Russ and Stephen will share with you the exercises they use to solve the REAL problems.

    You'll flex your critical thinking muscle through a series of jumpstarter activities. Even better, attendees will be encouraged to participate, if not embarrass themselves in front of a room full of their peers as they challenge themselves to see past the first, obvious - and often incorrect - answers, and start to flip problems on their heads to see solutions from a different view.

    Session Takeaways

    • Gain a better understanding of what critical thinking is, why it is important in the world of User Experience Design
    • Identify ways to evaluate the visual and verbal messages in your work
    • Spot artificial constraints to focus on the root problem(s).
    • View problems from a different perspective and remove yourself as a consumer/user.
    • Learn how reframing problems can lead to radically different solutions.
    • Dissect problems to uncover solutions you may have previously overlooked.
