HCDE Autumn Course Showcases

Each quarter, select HCDE courses host end-of-quarter events to showcase student work. These events are your opportunity to preview different HCDE classes and see what type of topics students are exploring. All members of the UW community are welcome to attend.

Instructor: Tyler Fox
Wednesday, Dec. 4  //  
2:30 – 4:30 p.m.  //  233 Sieg Hall

Students in this course have been exploring various user experience prototyping techniques such as model making, laser cutting, 3D printing, sewing, video, and interactive wire framing. Come see the wide range of projects they developed this quarter, on display in the CoMotion MakerSpace in Fluke Hall.

Constructing Design Narratives (HCDE 598)

Instructor: Adi Azulay
Thursday, Dec. 5  //  
6:30 – 9:30 p.m.  //  112 Denny Hall
Save to your calendar »

Design is a practice that is often viewed as a problem-solving process, but the tools of design offer so much more. In this course students used the design process to ask questions and create discussion about a topic rather than solve a problem. In this showcase students exhibit speculative design, discursive design, and design fiction projects with a strong focus on storytelling, narrative, and world building.

User-Centered Design (HCDE 518)

Instructor: Daniella Kim
Thursday, Dec. 5  //  
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.  //  233 Sieg Hall
