Teaching design and emotion in the foundation year : an industrial design approach
Gomez, Rafael E. & Wrigley, Cara (2012) Teaching design and emotion in the foundation year : an industrial design approach. In Brassett, Jamie, Hekkert, Paul, Ludden, Geke, Malpass, Matt, & McDonnell, Janet (Eds.)

This paper showcases two design tools; the ‘storyboard’ and ‘a day in the life’ demonstrated to design students in their foundational year (first year) of study. By employing these tools during the design process the aim was to provoke students to consider and design for emotional experiences for potential users. The assessment asked students to design an MP3 player using these tools. This is demonstrated through a student project that successfully used the tools and method introduced. The teaching theory, project context, student outcome as well as challenges faced by students using this approach are discussed. The paper concludes with implications for teaching emotion theory at an undergraduate level and potential future directions.
