Learning is much more than just retaining information.
In design the real challenge is about being open, inquisitive, a keen observer and listener and carefully prioritizing. This is often way more difficult than what the textbooks may suggest! There’s no better way to truly learn and internalize this than by seeing the theory translated into practice. I create workshops and that are about showing through example, often with hands-on making and doing component. Previous speaking engagements have focused on well-illustrated case studies and process rather than abstract theory. The content can be customized to suit the audience, context and different experience levels.
A sampling of workshops + talks I’m happy to offer include:
- UX Games
- Intro to UX
- Assumption (lo-fi physical) Prototyping
- Design Thinking
- Design Careers
