Event description

Description

Led by experienced design thinking facilitators from Chicago Public Library, Designing the Future is an introductory live workshop that provides the opportunity for library professionals and teams to tackle their real-life problems through a series of expert-led collaborative exercises.

With support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and in partnership with Chicago Public Library and Aarhus Public Library, this full-day introductory workshop draws upon the toolkit developed by IDEO, an award-winning, human-centered global design firm, to help libraries use design thinking to better understand and service library patrons. The program will take a step-by-step approach to guide you through the process of understanding design thinking so you can put it into practice at your library.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Through expert instruction and hands-on activity, you will learn:

  • About design thinking and its application to libraries
  • Analytical and creative thinking methods
  • How to apply human-centered design thinking to your library
  • How to gain a deeper understanding of your patrons
  • How to build a prototype

Join us for an exciting day that will empower you to tackle challenges. From space planning in all corners of the library to redesigning services and staffing to developing a more user-centric, community-minded approach, design thinking will allow you to unleash your ingenuity and creativity to problem solve.

This workshop does not require pre-existing knowledge or experience with design thinking. All participants will be given the tools and information needed to walk away with ideas to emulate in your library, regardless of its size or budget.

Attendees are encouraged to come as a group for a team building experience! Contact us for group rates.
