1)Why have you chosen to learn more about Design Thinking? And what do you hope to gain from taking this particular course?
2)Please describe a situation or project, from your personal experience, where barriers exist and where they hinder a solution to the problem. Then think about how you and others could remove those barriers.
I'm running an educational counseling service for foreigners in Japan, after working for strategic consulting firm in India.
I'm taking this course since I'm interested in UX research and UX design, which make users happier by emphasizing them as well as helping them recognize what they value.
I'm also thinking about trying to develop a new career as a UX researcher and a bit struggling in my job hunting.
To shift to new job which enables me work regardless of the place, half- employed/ half - India, make the most of my strengths (empathy & develop ppl etc.)
-> I got interested in the work as UXR
- Feeling a bit impatient ( like I need to study quickly !!) after talking with a career counselor.
- Knowing only few cases who are working as a UX researcher. Still don't have a clear image how is it like to work as a UX researcher. (Does it too busy? I prefer slow pace though)
◆How to apply design thinking?
- Try to make a small portfolio as well as talking to people in the community bit by bit then observe how I feel 😊😌
