Focusing on the human-centred side of problem solving

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Free

In workshop #3 of the Sandbox Discover program, we will continue focusing on the human-centred side of problem solving.

This week we will look at the “Define” stage of the design thinking process. We will look specifically at how to frame problem solving or brainstorming activities in a human-centred way. How do we draw on the learning gained in the Empathize stage to set ourselves up for innovative problem solving. Are we keeping people at the centre of the issue? What needs are being addressed? What insights can we leverage?

About the Sandbox Discover Program

The Sandbox Discover program is a free, extra-curricular program open to all students in any post-secondary degree/diploma program who want to learn more about innovation at its earliest stages. This is the messy and fun stage, where ideas emerge and are discarded at a rapid pace and failure is celebrated because it means insight was gained.
The skills and insights gained through the program are transferrable across disciplines and will allow you to bring an innovation mindset to everything from academic group projects, current and future workplaces or potential startups!
