Join our two-hour “crash course” to get a taste of human-centered design (HCD) –a process to generate new ideas to solve problems, while keeping people (“humans”) front and center. We run a fast-paced, hands-on activity, participants will learn some basic “mindsets” – like empathy ad a “beginner’s mind”, and a rapid prototyping, and a “bias toward action”. At the end, participants will reflect on the workshop, process, our solutions, and what we mean by “design thinking.” The crash course is free and open to the public, welcoming faculty, staff, students, and community members. The crash course begins promptly at the published start time, so please don’t be late! This interactive workshop is a quickly paced, timed exercise so be prepared to stay until the end.
