Facilitated Workshop about Principles of IxD and Design Thinking

Last month I received an invitation from Nearsoft asking me to plan a workshop with the help of two of their designers about principles of interaction design for non-design students, in specific for students in computer science. This workshop is part of an initiative created to impact students in early stages of their professional life.

Using resources as affinity diagramming and paper prototyping the students had the experience of actively participate on the design process from the stakeholders’ perspective. It was such a great experience, and these kind of platforms are a great opportunity to bring designers and people from other disciplines together.
