In my projects I think it is really important to include the user. This is why I chose this course, to get a better understanding about user experience and how to get information about the user experience. The methods I learned in this course helped to give me new tools to include the user in my design process, I think co-constructing stories could really help the user empathize with a situation and help the user give more feedback on the concept. Our own tool could also be of help, in predicting if my concept will be successful. Looking at the pains and gains of every user and comparing the old situation to the new situation could help me get a good perspective of the concept.
Because I am really interested in design for dementia the paper about “adoption of innovations” was really interesting for me. Every target group consists of individuals with a different likeliness to adopt a new innovation. This knowledge could be used how you approach a person. In my current project I noticed that some people, especially in care facilities are really protective against new innovations and research. But you also have people who are really interested in the new innovations and want to give their input to improve the concept. For the development of the concept, I think it is better to first approach early adopters to get a lot of input. And when looking at marketing you could focus on the later adopters too, by giving a lot of background information about the new innovation.
