UX Research Methods in Design
2021 - present
i designed and currently teach UX Research Methods for Design, a new undergraduate course in the Sam Fox School at Washington University in St. Louis (as of spring 2021).

in this course, students build an understanding of, and practice implementing, UX research methods through lenses of design justice, accessibility, consentful technology, and design ethics. through projects, discussions, and readings, students work to build an understanding of the role of research in UX/UI design.

students practice research methods including interviews, surveys, contextual inquiry, peer analysis, and heat mapping. they create artifacts that contextualize research within the broader UX design process, including personas, journey maps, affinity maps, and low-fidelity prototypes.
