Teaching Students About Human-Centered Design Consulting

Daniel Le Compte, User Experience Researcher at Anthro-Tech recently presented at an Alumni Information Session for The Human-Computer Interaction Institute, a department within the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

As an alumnus, Daniel’s presentation titled, “Government, Consulting, Social Impact, oh my!” gave students a glimpse into the life of a UX Researcher consulting in the Human-Centered Design (HCD) industry. The transition from student into a UX career can take on many different paths. Daniel enjoys giving back and talking about his experience with students to show them some real-life examples of how to take their degree and put it into action.

In this Information Session, Daniel discussed:

  • His role at Anthro-Tech as a UX Researcher
  • Anthro-Tech’s mission, values, service offerings, and client mix
  • Examples of how his UX Research has transformed the customers’ experience for various clients
  • How a UX Consulting Team is organized and how they interact with each client
  • A deep dive into what it’s like to work with government clients
  • The social impact aspect of working in the HCD industry
