In this workshop, participants will practice Human-Centered Design by engaging in a fun, hands-on micro-cycle of the process, using fellow workshop participants as design subjects.

Using Mouse’s Design League program as a model, participants will practice meaningful information gathering strategies, or “problem finding skills,” learn to frame questions for brainstorming, hone their creative ideation skills and create a rapid prototype of a product idea using craft supplies and digital tools and gift it to their user/fellow workshop participant.

We will also be exploring ways to meaningfully capture and leverage this kind of student design work and learning using badges and digital portfolios.

This workshop will be highly interactive, hands on, and insightful for educators who are interested in incorporating Human-Centered Design skills into their own content development or directly into student practice. It will also be informative for those interested in using badges as a credential, a tool to improve access to higher education, for underrepresented youth or students who may have unique strengths and abilities best highlighted by a portfolio system when compared to traditional pathways for entering higher education.
