PRD 370 - DESIGN RESEARCH METHODS


College of Design

Credit(s): 3

Discusses procedures and methods in the collection, analysis and evaluation of data to inform the design process. The course involves exercises in developing a research question and usability research strategies for investigating problems in user/product and user/environment relationships. Most of the strategies employ ethnographic methods. The course examines the definitions of knowledge, information, and data and how they are used in research. The course comprises a sequence of research exercises that require written, oral and visual delivery and a major research paper documenting a semester- long design research investigation. This course provides credit for the full Graduate Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) written, oral and visual for the Bachelor of Science in Product Design and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.

Prereq: CIS/WRD 110, CIS/WRD 111, and permission of instructor.
