What does it take to become a great product designer?
I’m sure there are many answers to this query as there are people who teach and work in the product design field. I particularly like the answer of RSA Animate:
RSA Animate: Changing Education Paradigm.

Product Design Workshop
If you took my “Cognitive Tools For Interaction Design” class in the past, you were asked to develop an idea for a product as part of the class project. Some of these ideas were so good that I expect to see them widely distributed all over the world! But in that class, we only started on the path of product development. I’m considering a follow up class that would take those ideas and move them farther toward reality. I’m considering teaching another class: “Product Design Workshop.” If this is something that you might want to take, please contact me—I would need to show UCB that there is sufficient interest out there for such a class. Thank you!
