Event description
The ability to listen and to extract user needs from human interactions you have with other fellow humans will help you succeed

About this Event

Do you think integration is hard? Have you ever thought about why is so hard for immigrants to integrate in a new country? Do you think that there are other possible ways to live together in the city? Have you ever experience sex discrimination? This is your opportunity to answer these and many other questions with real field work interviewing.

Come to our info session where we will explain you all you need to know about our Human Centered Design Academy. 6.5 hours a week from March 15 to April 15 (3 hour theory, 20 hour field research , 3 hours process, download and organize research data)

Embracing human-centered design means believing that all problems, even the seemingly intractable ones like poverty, gender equality,and clean water, are solvable. Moreover, it means believing that the people who face those problems every day are the ones who hold the key to their answer.

The ability to listen and to extract user needs from any kind of interactions you have with other fellow humans will help you succeed in any job, product or service design you want to undertake in your future.

Empathy is the capacity to step into other people’s shoes, to understand their lives, and start to solve problems from their perspectives. Human centered design is premised on empathy, on the idea that the people you’re designing for are your roadmap to innovative solutions. All you have to do is empathize, understand them, and bring them along with you in the design process.

This is not a theoretical learning program. It’s a hands-on, producing-work project. You will be capturing insights for a digital content project that will be published for a charity.

After the academy participants will be able to:

  • Learn how to conduct design research interviews (dialogue interviews,sensing from the field)
  • Understand the main principles of deep listening
  • Explore important skills for leadership: self awareness, political awareness and understanding others
  • Broaden one’s conversational repertoire and to learn how to operate from other fields of conversational emergence. From downloading to talking from the flow of pure presence.
  • Collect digital asssets in a multimedia format for a real project that will have positive impact in society
  • Pushing yourself off the safe ground into total presence
  • Test your emotional intelligence as your ability to monitor one’s own and other’s emotions;
  • Learn How to Process and organize research data so that it can be reused by different teams and functions
