8-hour highly interactive human-centered design workshop.
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.
Why do we do this?
We want to work with you. We need more people familiar with the skill sets and mindsets of human centered design. If you like this, we will provide more opportunities for you to get experience and eventually join a diverse engaged and talented team to solve real problems.
