As the ultimate goal of User Experience Design (UXD) is to invoke specific sentiments in customers to enable other parts of the organisation/company ecosystem to flourish, a User Experience Designer must understand what components of Experience can be created and molded for maximum impact. These components include Perceptions, Emotions and Sensations. Each of these components can be influenced in different ways, either separately or in concert, to achieve the desired sentiment in the end user’s mind. This course discusses the crafting of Cognitive, Social and Emotional events, so as to influence users’ Perceptions, Emotions and Sensations, with the intention of producing the intended sentiments in users.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in User Experience Design.
The course provides the participant with the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand the concepts of cognition, attention, memory, and mental models, and why are they important for UXD
- Understand the three components – Perception, Emotion and Sensation that make up an Experience, and what can be done to influence the sentiments produced by such experiences.
- Design appropriate Cognitive, Social and Emotional interactions to achieve the intended effects of influencing the components of Experience.
- Design products/services to change human behaviour.
Who Should Attend
Must have taken and passed “Introduction to UXD” course or 1-year of experience in Service/System Design and/or customer/client-facing roles. Good English proficiency. Has an understanding of UX Design is, as well as the role of a UX Designer in the system development life cycle, including the skillsets a UX Designer must have to perform UX Design.
