Participants are guided in an immersive activity that exposes
participants to the full cycle of design thinking in a short timeframe.
It will touch on the fundamental values of human-centered design: a
bias toward action, a culture of iteration, and the importance of rapid
prototyping. The latter portion of the session will unpack the results
of the activity and tie them back to the day-to-day challenges that
participants face in their home institution.
