Creating and Assessing Human-Centered Design Challenges

12-1pm | Thursday, February 3rd
This workshop facilitates the creation of design challenges that address course objectives while giving students authentic design experiences. We will accomplish this by discussing a framing tool consisting of a series of questions which help us explore potential project topics and create human-centered design prompts. All instructional backgrounds are welcome. Participants should come prepared to consider their course learning objectives in a new light.

Using Design Tools for Research and Teaching: Introduction to Miro

12-1pm | Thursday, April 7th
This workshop will introduce you to the basic mechanics of Miro - a virtual whiteboard tool used across many industries to create and collaborate. The SCD team uses Miro to collect and organize research, to facilitate remote and asynchronous work, and to create assignments and collaborative environments for student group projects. In this session, we’ll show you examples of how we use it in our work and provide templates and suggestions for how you might begin using it for instruction or research.
