Event description

Description

“We spend a lot of time designing the bridge, but not enough time thinking about the people who are crossing it.”

Following a brief introduction to Design Thinking and its core principles, this workshop will take participants through a full cycle of applying its fundamental tools and processes to a given brief.


With a bias towards action, this fast-paced workshop will teach you the fundamentals of Design Thinking; including methods for rapidly building empathy for your target user, generating solutions and tools for synthesis and decision making - all of which can be applied to advance your work, life and interests.


Homework

To get the most out of this workshop and apply these methods to a real scenario, participants are asked to do some light prep beforehand:

Think about something that is making you feel stuck, a situation, an emotion, a recurring event, not a person.

Write a 250-word story about it and bring it to the workshop.

Important:

These stories need to be:

- true

- personal

- sharable with the class
