Critical Thinking Skills for UX Designers (or Anyone, Really!)

A session at UX Lx: User Experience Lisbon 2011

Friday 13th May, 2011

11:40am to 12:20pm (LMT)

Love creative problem solving, but need something more practical— something specific to User Experience? Stephen P. Anderson will share with you the exercises he uses to solve the REAL problems.

You'll flex your critical thinking muscle through a series of jump starter activities. Even better, attendees may 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.
