Design Research

In this module, students will be introduced to the process of conducting User Experience (UX) research. Students will be taught the various theories and techniques in UX research to enable them to collect, analyse, and visualise data about users’ needs, preferences, and behaviours. Students will learn how to use these insights to inform the design of a digital platform. By the end of the module, students will be able to plan a research study, collect data for a design problem, as well as to analyse the collected data. Students will be also able to present insights to inform the design of an evidence-based solution to a design problem for digital platforms.

Design Research is a module selected from the User Experience for Infocomm Technology. It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma. Further, participants may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period, of 2 years, to be awarded the full Specialist Diploma qualification.
