During my M2.1 semester, I made a transition from DIGSIM to the Transforming Practices (TP) squad within our faculty. My goal was to engage in design work that aligned with my interests while being part of a like-minded community. Together with my fellow students, I had the opportunity to collaborate with RISE on a project focused on exploring a 'Repository of Transformation'—a platform for sharing knowledge and fostering participation. In this project, I specifically focused on designing the user experience for adding content to the platform.
Being a member of the TP squad greatly broadened my understanding of the role of design in societal transformation. The collaboration with an industry partner offered invaluable insights and allowed me to apply the skills I had acquired from DIGSIM to the TP field. This experience significantly boosted my confidence in recognizing and discussing the crucial role that design plays in addressing societal issues.
