Week 1 Journal - Introduction

Maria Harris - Tue 25 February 2020, 9:52 pm

Hello everyone, my name is Maria and I am currently in my third year of studying a Bachelor of Information Technology.

I enjoy UX design as I find it challenging and interesting because I get to work on different projects that allow multiple iterations, as an idea can always be better. I am an organised and hardworking person who wants to contribute fairly to my team; I want to be a part of the creation of the project.

I don’t have a lot of expectations for this course other than that I expect that I will learn to use the equipment effectively to create a physical project which will incorporate technology. This means the project will need to be programmed, designed and built.

I am looking forward to using my hands and being creative with physical materials. In this course, I want to learn new skills that will allow me and my team to create an object with or through technology. I want to be a part of the journey starting with the creation of ideas, iterating them and then eventually creating a final prototype that will be shown at the exhibition.

In DECO3850 I am concerned that I don’t have enough skills to contribute more than just one role such as a designer. However, I want to push myself to be a bit more experienced in programming and using equipment to build a physical project.
