Greetings! I am a (very recent) graduate in Software Engineering from
Sri Lanka and I wish to peruse my higher studies (postgrads) in research based
user experience design and development. Professionally I do not have any HCI,
usability or UX related work or research experience. As a matter of fact, there
are no academic or commercial user experience labs in Sri Lanka. And finding opportunity
to gain work experience on such a field is very hard here.
I am in the final semester of my Master's degree in Human Computer Interaction Design from Indiana University, Bloomington,
As part of my master's thesis, I'm looking for designers to try out a tool I am designing to help understand and brainstorm on how to do experience design.
If you are a designer doing individual or group work and you are at the ideation phase of your project, or considering doing a redesign of a project, please get in touch with me. I would sincerely appreciate your help. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking for strategies to quiet legal nerves about doing design research in people's homes or cars (contextual inquiry, field studies, etc). Their main worry is safety: is someone going to go nuts and hurt you if you visit their home? And then what?
