General Feedback on Mindful Design Practice

What worked:

  • Clear presentations outlining the rational and context of the project – including references to appropriate literature and/or statistics to back up the need for the project
  • Explanation of the methods used, why they were chosen, how they worked  and the insights gained.
  • A range of prototypes produced in appropriate fidelity.
  • Excellent project management (which also correlated with well written up tutorial notes with clear objectives set by the student)
  • Presentations done unapologetically and without notes, demonstrating that the presented fully understood their research question and the strengths
  • Regularly maintained blog.
  • Confidence with material.

What didn’t work:

  • Assuming prior knowledge of project
  • Using specialist or particular terms without defining them
  • Text heavy slides
  • Reading verbatim from notes (indicates lack of confidence in material)
  • Describing what you did without explaining what you discovered
  • lack of clarity about future direction
