This week is about contexts and creating scenarios. It's about the "people" factor of the design.
Coming from a technical and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) background, this is definitely not foreign to me, and I see many similar concepts, theories and frameworks being used here and in traditional HCI design projects.
Therefore, this week, my objectives and plans would be to:
1. Compare and contrast Contextual Approaches in Learning Design (as described in this weeks' activities) with HCI design processes - particularly User Centered Design (UCD).
2. Develop scenario for a project (either the project I have decided upon joining, or another personal project on hand).
3. Go through at least one of new frameworks / tools being presented in the Week 2 outline (persona, force maps, EoR analysis & representation, document use of alternative approach) and pick a suitable one.
4. Review scenario and revise as necessary.
