20 UXers from across the discipline’s spectrum participated in a five hour Presumptive Design course on the final day of CHI2016 in San Jose, CA. By all measures, the course was considered a huge success: NPS of +42, respondents said it was worth attending (6.3 out of 7), and all were deeply engaged.
It was a full agenda:
|Intro||The Engagement Session Interview||Break|
|What is PrD?||Engagement Session Prep||Debrief/Analysis|
|The Design Challenge||Artifact Preparation||Report-outs|
|What are Assumptions||Lunch||What is PrD?|
|The Importance of Objectives||Artifact Preparation||Evaluation / Books|
|Identifying Tasks||Engagement Session||Evaluation / Books|
|Identifying Context||Engagement Session||Evaluation / Books|
Attendees mentioned validating assumptions, excellent facilitation, working with outside users, and the balance between theory and practice as some of the high points of the course. In spite of extending the course an hour beyond its intended fours hours, participants thought it could have gone on all day.
“A fun, engaging course!”
“I could use [PrD] in my everyday work.”
