Go with It: Learning by Doing

A session at UX Week 2012

Friday 24th August, 2012

3:00pm to 3:30pm (PST)

he pressure is on more than ever now that “creativity” is the hot 21st century skill and American creativity is on the decline. What should we do?

Design educational experiences that don’t feel educational.

During this talk, Brianna will share insights from a career in exhibition design, which requires a delicate balance of content knowledge, design skill and rule breaking.

For Brianna, how you approach a design challenge matters, but how you seize opportunities might matter even more. Her most recent opportunities have been creating educational experiences for young children, which have provided inspiration for how to reinvigorate her own creativity. Brianna will share some techniques she’s incorporating into her own design process, which she thinks might be good reminders for anyone designing experiences for any age:

  • Kid-like Curiosity: What If vs. If Only …
  • Ego-less Ego: Fear Not
  • Find Flow: Get Bored
  • Confidence Boost: Find Comfort in Discomfort
  • Suck it Up: Take the Plunge
