Notes

Abstract: For more than two decades, user-centered design (UCD) has been the guiding philosophy and process in the field of design from both practice and pedagogy perspectives. Although there is no singular agreement on just what constitutes UCD and many different names for and "flavors" of UCD have emerged - human-centered design, just to name a few-nearly every version relies on an early and continual interaction with people who will actually use the product. Designers then use findings from the interactions (e.g. surveys, focus groups, card sorting exercises, document reviews, scenario-based testing, and plus-mining testing) to guide the design solutions.
