Design Days Bootcamps 2016

In this one-day workshop, participants will discover Design Thinking — an innovative, human-centered approach to problem solving — which can be applied throughout academic, professional, entrepreneurial, or personal pursuits. Design Thinking has been used to solve complex problems across a broad array of industries including start-ups, business, healthcare, technology, government, the arts, and more.

Participants will learn the Design Thinking process through multiple design cycles: gaining inspiration through empathy, taking part in creative ideation, and iteratively prototyping to test user feedback. Participants will spend a day learning by doing, and leave with a more confident and inspired problem solving ability.

As Design Thinking thrives with a diverse array of skill sets and perspectives, students, faculty, and staff from all CU schools and programs are highly encouraged to apply. No previous experience is necessary. Design Days Bootcamps will be taught by Morley McBride, former IDEO strategist and founder of More Creative By Design (MCBD).

This project is supported by the CU-Boulder Entrepreneurship Initiative Seed Award.
