You’ve come far. But in a lot of ways, you are just starting.


Notes on WNM700

Just as I’ve provided a few notes on the various challenges, here are a few notes on the course as a whole.


Self Evaluation and Course Evaluation

Here’s your final journal entry.

Answer the following queries in your own words. Don’t google other’s responses or worry about writing the wrong thing. I’m interested in your own experiences and reflections. Write more than a few sentences, but less than a novel. Don’t rush. Do be truthful. Feel free to cite your own projects and process you’ve produced in this class for figurative examples if need be, or even other student’s projects! 

Learning Reflection:

  • What does human centered design mean to you?
  • What joys did you find in research?
  • What is something you found that surprised you in this class?
  • What does it mean to work from Topic -> Project?
  • What have you learned while testing and evaluating your solutions? Give an example. 
  • What is the role of critique in design? What is hard about it and what is easy?


  • What challenges did this class pose for you?
  • How were you able to meet or overcome these challenges?
  • …and what challenges remain in your design journey?
  • How would you assess the development of your design thinking, visual communication, user experience, and professional readiness skills?


  • What advice would you give incoming students?
  • What advice would you give to a new instructor of WNM 700?
  • What instruction or assignment was most useful, and what was the least clear or hardest to understand?
  • Anything else?
