Virtual Design Thinking Sprint
Design is not about beauty, although it sometimes may require it. What is really unique about the design is the process that places the user at the center of the design canvas. This virtual, yet hands-on design thinking sprint, will expose participants to the creative problem-solving framework. We will tackle an authentic challenge in collaboration with a leading industry partner. Participants will engage in an experiential learning experience that reflects the high-impact practices that AUC aspires to promote.
Design Thinking is a human-centered innovation framework adopted by fortune 500 companies, including Apple, IBM, P&G, Airbnb, JP Morgan, among many others. Design Thinking teams follow an iterative process to discover user needs, struggles and aspirations, and design user-centered solutions that are technically feasible and financially viable.
