This subject was previously known as DIG272 Universal Design Principles.
This subject emphasises the importance of considering end users when developing a design experience. Students will be introduced to a set of ‘universal’ design principles that are common to all disciplines of user experience design. By analysing case studies through this framework of universal design principles, students will have an opportunity to hone their awareness of user-centred design and consider how individual elements may be shaped to improve the users’ experience. Students will synthesise these universal design principles by developing a user-centred solution to a discipline-relevant design problem.
