Special Courses in Psychology
Fall 2020 - [for fall 2020 the pscyh 188b topic was fundamentals of user experience research] Great class and I hope they make this a permanent offering. Content is great and lectures were well organized for most of the quarter. The first half of content from the textbook is well organized and presented. The prof fell off the radar around week 4-6 and the final was very specific to lecture material, lots of memorization. The first few lectures without the textbook were really detailed and specific, kinda like they didn't know how to explain and break it down better. That was definitely the worst time in the class but afterwards I think they became a lot more receptive with the material. They gave extensions for the project and lectures were shorter which helped a lot. I think it's a solid class to take if you're interested in UX but it'll definitely take a lot of effort at some points.
