Design Thinking Gumbo: Building Rapport in a Virtual World
The Covid-19 pandemic has created the unique opportunity to explore the application of design thinking methods in a remote and virtual way. Building Rapport in a Virtual World explores the concept of rapport, how to build it normally, and how to build it virtually or in-person (when faced with social distancing measures).

Design Thinking (DT) Gumbo is a series of one-hour workshops on a variety of methods that can be used in design research.
- Each workshop will introduce a method, share examples of its use in other settings, and include space for participants to practice the method together.
- Think of these methods as ingredients to make your design thinking work much more rich and flavorful. Try out the different ingredients and see which ones appeal the most to your palate.
- This semester all of our method workshops will focus on understanding people’s experience of the coronavirus pandemic.
- DT Gumbo is a project of the design thinking program of the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking at Tulane University.
- All workshops are co-facilitated by Dr. Lesley-Ann Noel and a Taylor Center Design Thinking Graduate Assistant.
