Abstract Details (PID = P304)
Title:WS: An Introduction to Human-Centered-Design: Identifying Opportunities (P304)
Description:Human-Centered-Design (HCD) requires that end users play a principal role in the identification of design opportunities and the subsequent development of solutions. In this workshop participants will be introduced to techniques for uncovering latent needs and converting these needs into design requirements. Using a hands-on fish bowl activity involving familiar household items (kitchen utensils), everyone will experience the benefits of ethnographic research (e.g., observation, interviewing) and exhaustive benchmarking to uncover problems with commonly used tools. In turn, these problems will be re-framed as unmet needs which can be used to guide the downstream design process. (WORKSHOP - Requires Pre-Registration)
