Creative Methods for Idea Development

The foundation for this workshop ‘distributed cognition’ the notion that we think not only with our minds but hands and bodies. In this workshop students learn how to start with rough idea and form it into something that can be tested or verified. In a highly participate format students will use concepts of the Story Curve, User Story Mapping and Design Studio to sketch, present, discuss and refine multiple solutions.
