SOD faculty Lori Rubeling and Inna Alesina continue their Impact design initiative by facilitating design thinking workshops by visiting classrooms of their colleagues at Stevenson University.
This week they conducted idea-generating charrette in two Film and Moving Image classes taught by faculty Dina Fiasconaro.
Next week, Inna Alesina will use design thinking to walk students taking ENG 381 class taught by faculty Amanda Licastro through the scenario design exercise where students will envision how people will read in the future.
What are Impact Design Processes?
Impact Design Processes incorporate more variables than simply designing the way things look.
Impact Design requires all participants to abandon assumptions and
conventions in solving design problems.
1. Thinking non-linearly
2. Beginning with questions instead of outcomes
• scenario-based questions
• systems-based questions
• human-centered questions
• learning framework questions
3. Devise questions by generating
• yes/no maps
• Idea /mind maps
• word lists
• connotations and denotations lists
