In ‘Building Your Design Muscles’, we looked at the things designers do everyday to shape up their practice. This five part series of design thinking workshops can support your students' learning of design thinking by building the skills they need outside of the ‘design process’.
Each session focuses on practicing a different core design capacity: Noticing, Ambiguity, Negotiation, Metaphors, and Critique. The classes include experimental workshop exercises, presentations, facilitated discussions and structured debriefs. For new designers and non-design students, muscles are awoken for the first time. For more seasoned design students, we introduce tips and techniques for strengthening their fundamentals.
