“Stories from Kenya on human-centered design for international development”

10.28.2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

You are invited to hear research on how design thinking, a creative problem-solving strategy, is spreading in the world.  Join us Friday, October 28, from 2 to 4 pm at 200 Flower Hall for a conversation with Maille Faughnan, a Tulane doctoral candidate. This is part of the fall series of Social Innovation Conversations at Taylor.

 Ms. Faughnan will present on her experiences and insights from conducting recent field research in rural Kenya on the uptake of human-centered design mindsets and methods for an international development organization. The audience will be invited to ask questions and engage in discussion with presenters and other scholars and practitioners of human-centered design.

Ms. Faughnan’s presentation and discussion is part of a regular “Conversations in Social Innovation” series at the Taylor Center.  These are designed to be informal introductions to topics related to research and scholarship in social innovation, social entrepreneurship, social intrapreneurship, and Changemaking. We feature doctoral students, faculty, and community partners engaged in research.  The events are open to anyone interested in learning about trends and methods in research and scholarship in social innovation especially graduate students and scholars.

Please arrive on time! Light refreshments will be provided.
