It is time to start the group design project. During the workshops we will introduce you to a design process and several design methods which should help you to get started with the project. We would like to ask you to prepare the following for the Weekend Workshop and for Workshop I (the preparations are the same for both workshops):
- Watch the following video: ABC Nightline IDEO Shopping Cart
- Read the articles in the course reader for the two workshops on time
It is important that you come prepared, because we will not watch the video in class, but we will refer to it and discuss it.
The Weekend Workshop will be from 12:00 – 17:00. We will provide some snacks and drinks, but make sure that you bring some of your own as well in case you get hungry.
For both workshops feel free to bring extra materials you would like to use, e.g. sketchbooks, markers, pencils, etc. which you think might be helpful in the process and which will help you to build prototypes. You will not need your laptop during the workshops and since we will be building prototypes, have drinks around, etc. we suggest that you leave it at home.
Please note that the workshops will be held in the Cemus Library in Geocentrum. Please ring the doorbell in case you cannot get in.
Also important: from now on we will have fewer joint sessions, which will give you more time to work on your design project. This makes it extra important to keep checking the course portal regularly to stay updated with the latest news about the course.
We are looking forward to some creative sessions and to see what you will design!
