Title: Teaching Design with Personas
Author(s): Jones, M. Cameron; Floyd, Ingbert R.; Twidale, Michael B.
Subject(s): education personas teaching design design spaces pedagogy
Abstract: The paper explores the effectiveness of persona-based design methods in HCI education. We describe the experiences of our students in learning, practicing, and using personas in a number of design contexts. From these experiences, we identify common patterns of use and misuse and characterize challenges in incorporating and using personas in the classroom. We conclude with advice on how to effectively teach design using personas.
