Designing for authentic change can be challenging. We face constraints; lots of them. From lack of funding to fixed physical structures, the challenges can be overwhelming. In this workshop, we sprint, using design thinking, through an experiential immersion in how to design for change, using first our minds, and then, our hands (making).

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Learn how to frame an expedition at the onset by way of warm up activities that encourage creative confidence and ideation absent of constraints.
  2. Learn to synthesize, and make sense, of human centered ideas. 
  3. Work collaboratively with your workshop design team to establish design drivers that will inform how a physical learning space is designed.
  4. Design a prototypical learning space, using 3D modeling, that reflects the human centered design drivers you and your team created.
