Event description
Join us for a fun and interactive design session to address challenges experienced by people with disabilities!

About this Event

There are many assistive technology (AT) solutions available today designed to address specific needs of individuals with disabilities. At the same time, technologies designed to meet the needs of the general consumer market are rapidly emerging and often adopted by users with disabilities as they discover these technologies can help them overcome challenges or barriers, while also supporting them in other everyday needs.

Join us for a fun and interactive design session as we work to address challenges experienced by people with disabilities and work toward concepts to solve those challenges. Our workshop will be in the afternoon of Wednesday, January 29 in Antigua 2.

Our keynote speaker will be Bryce Johnson, one of the inventors of the Xbox Adaptive Controller!

Whether you identify as an individual from the community, a practitioner, a technologist, a designer, or you are just interested in joining with others from a variety of backgrounds, you will learn to apply design thinking towards this problem space to brainstorm innovative ideas and solutions to these everyday challenges. This workshop will be a guided session to apply design thinking and you will learn how this process is applicable across different industries.

In this interactive session you will learn to:

  • Build empathy with target users
  • Learn about design thinking
  • Develop a deeper understanding of problem space
  • Brainstorm possible solutions

What to bring: Bring a friend or colleague or just bring yourself. We will supply all the materials needed.

Perks: We offer CEU and CRC Credits! Sign up today!
