The Taylor Center’s 2 hour “crash course” introduces participants to human-centered design (HCD) as a process to generate new ideas to solve problems, while keeping people (“humans”) front and center. Through a fast-paced, hands-on activity, participants will learn some basic “mindsets” of design-thinking. Human centered design is a way of engaging with the world with empathy, a “beginner’s mind”, and a “bias toward action”. At the conclusion of the course, participants will take time to reflect on the workshop and the learning objectives. 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.
