I started today at a new contract leading a new UCD team on a hugely
important project. In doing so discovered that some of my team are fine
at UCD techniques (interviews, paper prototype testing, usability
testing) but are completely missing the vital element in the middle -
I have some strategies to work through this, and something I want to try
is to incorporate the idea of peer critiquing. This is something I know
is often done in design & visual arts training but, not having grown
from either of those areas, don't know a lot about it.
I need some places to start reading or smart people to chat to. I'm
trying to get my hands on a copy of Schon's 'the reflective
practitioner' but am not sure where else to start. I'm not even quite
sure how to phrase my question...
