Workshop: Design Techniques
Thursday, May 24, 2018
A workshop presented during the Human-Computer Interaction Lab 35th Annual Symposium.
University of Maryland
After engaging in a few introductory design thinking and participatory design activities, workshop participants will collaborate with subject matter experts to help them tackle some of their strategic challenges in four topic areas:
- Community Outreach and Education
- Consulting and Business Project Management
- Sustainability/Environmental Science (and Community Food Security)
- Real Estate
Participants will learn the design thinking process through co-designing new technologies and innovations to address challenges and opportunities. Participants can come to the workshop with a specific topic area that they’d like to help with. Alternatively, they can select a topic area to work on after reviewing the possibilities with our guest experts.
