This workshop will provide a crash course on design thinking, focusing on the fundamentals of human centred design. Beyond just the process, attendees will be able to speak to challenges and learn how Monash’s XYX Labs work to address policy changes. This workshop will allow attendees to feel confident in their ability to teach and lead design-thinking principles within their organisations, becoming true champions for this way of working.
Led by design veteran Gene Bawden, he has assisted in setting up three labs within the university, looking at gender equity design health, and mobility design. He will guide attendees on how to run proper design thinking workshops that will bridge siloes and encourage cross-collaboration within all departments.
This workshop is designed for those new to design thinking methods, need a deeper understanding of the design process or who require a refresher on how to effectively facilitate workshops.
