Design Thinking Workshop Series: 2b. Inspiration and Contextual Interviews

This workshop is the second in the introductory workshop series on design thinking. In it, we'll review the previous session, introduce the purpose and mindsets of design research, and introduce the "contextual interview" as a core tool. Like all workshops in the series, the first hour will be facilitated, and the second, optional hour will be open coaching time to talk through your work. Registration is open to all, including those who did not attend previous sessions.

Keller Center and Tiger Challenge present an introductory workshop series on design thinking. Design thinking is a body of techniques for human-centered problem solving, which includes: a guiding processgeneralized from the design disciplines; an ever-expanding suite of tools, drawn from design disciplines, social sciences, business, development, etc; and underlying mindsets, including creativity skills, empathic reasoning, and abductive logic. 
The workshops can function both as a series to help individuals and teams through project work, or as individual topic explorations. The first hour of each session will be a facilitated workshop on a stage of the process and a corresponding technique. The second, optional hour will be open coaching time in which Keller Center Faculty and student leaders will float around and help folks with their work. 
Registration required. {Warning: If you register but decide you cannot make it last-minute, we may ask you to be interviewed by the Tiger Challenge team that is studying the “culture of bailing” at Princeton. :) }

 

Two times for the same content. The Wednesdays and Fridays are duplicate material. You should sign up either for a given Wednesday or the corresponding Friday. 


What to expect: The first hour of each session will be facilitated. The second hour is optional and will be an open working time with coaches floating around to assist with each participant/team’s work. 
 

Filming Fridays: the Friday workshops will be filmed. This will allow us to offer this content digitally. All Friday participants will be asked to sign a waiver. 
Open to all university and non-university community members. Each session has a cap of 25 attendees; priority given to those attending all six in the series.
