Episode #9: User Experience and Design (LCL Audio)

“User experience is a team sport.”

This episode is an audio version of a virtual panel held at the Linguistics Career Launch in the summer of 2021; the presenter is Nancy Frishberg, one of the LCL organizers.

In this session, Nancy provides a historical perspective on the intersection of linguistics and user
experience and design. She addresses questions such as:
What is design? Who is a designer?
What do we mean by user research? What is the difference between art and design? And how do your skills as a linguist translate to user design?
