Experiential Learning

To fully understand human-centered design (HCD), nothing takes the place of immersive, experiential, get-your-hands-dirty, experience. It takes time and effort to get in the mindset of HCD–to explore problem-solving in a holistic, collaborative, full-circle way. To get comfortable with being scrappy, with having an open-door policy for feedback, with researching AND THEN implementing in ways that can provide solutions that make an impact. 

SCD (in addition to workshops, boot camps, and courses) offers deeper learning opportunities through SCD Scholars, SCD Fellows, and SCD Student Interns, all of which are paid positions requiring an application process.
