The world of graphic design, marketing, and product design have caught on to something interesting: it’s called human centered design. A term referencing a way of developing designed materials, the HCD and participatory design trend started to gel in the 1980’s. It’s even starting to show up in learning and development! Google the term and you’ll find dozens of books, kits, online courses and more that’ll teach you all about the philosophy, but not much about the application. In this hands-on workshop, we’re going to do both: we’ll learn the nuts and bolts of human centered design and we’ll also design a learning experience during the workshop. Why come make a learning event while learning? Well, because HCD will change the way you develop instructional materials forever – for the better!
