A Crash Course in User-Centered Design
Join us for an introductory experience of the user centered design process as it is taught at the Design School (d.school) on the Stanford Campus http://dschool.stanford.edu/dgift/. During this session, we'll go step-by-step through the process of participating in a design challenge. You will leave with the tools and resources to facilitate the same process for future projects. You'll also come away with some of the basic principles of Design Thinking and be able to start to adapt them into your personal and professional routines.
The Learning Objectives are:
• Practice some of the basic principles of Design Thinking
• Experience the energy and pace of the design process
• Be empowered to use the resources on the design school
