Design thinking is a process and a mindset to understand people and their problems before developing the solutions. Human-centered design prioritizes empathy as a tool to better identify, understand and solve problems. This framework involves fast-paced data collection through interviews and observation, synthesis of information and iterative prototyping of creative solutions.

Through this course, you will hone a design mindset and problem solving skills that will shape your career path and prepare you for future design challenges. You will have gained the tools to work collaboratively, identify core issues and create tailored solutions with confidence. This course will help you acquire the tools you need to gain a deeper understanding of how people are truly impacted by problems.

This four week program requires approximately 6-8 hours per week, including twice weekly two-hour collaborative workshops on Zoom and individual assignments.

Groups will be formed based on student schedules/availability.
