Intensive Human Centered Design Workshop

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 8:00am
You’re invited to learn about human-centered design in a one-day hands-on workshop. Using the process and tools developed by IDEO.org, this workshop will introduce you to human-centered design, get you out in the field, and help you prototype and test your ideas quickly.
 
Human-centered design is a creative approach to problem solving and the backbone of the work done at IDEO.org. It’s a process that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs. Human-centered design is all about building a deep empathy with the people you’re designing for; generating tons of ideas; building a bunch of prototypes; sharing what you’ve made with the people you’re designing for; and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world.
 
Human-centered design consists of three phases:
 
  • In the Inspiration Phase you’ll learn directly from the people you’re designing for as you immerse yourself in their lives and come to deeply understand their needs.
  • In the Ideation Phase you’ll make sense of what you learned, identify opportunities for design, and prototype possible solutions.
  • And in the Implementation Phase you’ll bring your solution to life, and eventually, to market. And you’ll know that your solution will be a success because you’ve kept the very people you’re looking to serve at the heart of the process.
