Design Dump is a 1-day hands-on design workshop open to all Harvard students. It is an introductory workshop, most appropriate for those with a newfound interest in designing solutions to real-world problems.
The real world is complex, and so is solving real world problems. Often times we don’t get to address these multi-faceted problems in the classroom.
The Design Dump workshop is an introduction to design in a broad, multidisciplinary context. It combines case studies and hands-on team activities that let you experience how to design solutions to real-world problems from a holistic, process-based approach.
Design is often a vague term that can include lots of different types of design. This workshop is purposefully broad. We take design to include all of these different facets, and define it as a holistic approach to “solving real-world problems in a team.” The workshop draws on a range of examples across many fields, and introduces a process through which teams can develop design solutions to a variety of real-world problems.
Are you interested in design and solving real-world problems? Are you looking for a quick, introductory, information dump on design and designing solutions? Then the Design Dump workshop is for you.
Next workshop will be held in Spring 2013
