How is the concept of "play" critical to the practice of design? Why? Or why not?
The Cooper-Hewitt is at the forefront of exhibition design. How is the innovative
implementation of the "Pen" re-defining visitors view and interpret a museum
collection? Describe how this device could be used in other organizations or with
one of your clients to expand the experience or enhance participation.
Game theory and gamification are increasingly used to inform, motivate,
and encourage certain types of human behavior. What are potential opportunities
for the design profession to implement game theory? Please consider and discuss
the use of game theory or aspects of gamification by any of your clients. Examples
can include HR practices in the workplace, as an assess-ment or diagnostic tool
in healthcare, or as an instructional assist in education/institutional.
The vitality of "user research" is a hot topic, especially given the recent dialogue
on the "designer disconnect" spurred by the New York Times Op-Ed "How to Rebuild
Architecture." Explain your best methodology to determine client need. How reliable
is the metho-dology? Why or why not? Discuss how you interpret user research
and explain what it means to your client-particularly if the results are contrary
to what the client may want or envision for a project.
Well-being requires more than "sit/stand" options and an adjust-able height desk.
What are the key components of an organi-zation or workplace that is truly
committed to workplace wellness? How do you engage your clients in a conversation
about well--being? Be predictive. Discuss how well-being will change (has changed)
the practice of design.
