Design Thinking Gumbo: Narratives and Storytelling in Public Health
About this Event
Covid-19 has changed the way humans are able to safely and meaningfully connect with each other.
Narratives and Storytelling in Public Health will explore the implementation of story sharing and usage of the narrative arc to promote connection and documentation of individuals’ lived experiences through the Covid-19 pandemic.
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.
