Course Description:

Join us for an engaging virtual bootcamp where we will learn to use design thinking methods to tackle new problems that we face through a time of remoteness and sheltering.
Design can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. The goal of the workshop will be to empower non-designers with the tools to be more human-centered in their every day work.

We’ve curated a handful of activities to help each of you identify and walk away with at least one design thinking method that you can practice in your own jobs. It could be as simple as learning to ask the right questions to ask users to understand problems holistically, or as complex as generating new ideas through brainstorming and sketching exercises.

To help empathize and build community with each other, our workshop will be focused on the problems that you’re facing in this time of sheltering. Let’s come together to discuss and problem solve the new things you’re experiencing from remote work, learning, socializing, and everything else under the roof.

Let’s spend time in community and learn new skills together!
