The Siebel Center for Design is offering a series of workshops and boot camps for students interested in incorporating human-centered design and design thinking into their studies and work.
SCD’s Lunchtime Learner Workshops engage learners in activities and experience practices associated with the six mindsets around human-centered design: the Human-Centered mindset, the Collaborative mindset, the Communicative mindset, the Creative mindset, the Experimental mindset and the Metacognitive mindset. These standalone sessions are open to University of Illinois students, faculty, and staff interested in learning more about human-centered design and its mindsets. Learners attend in-person at SCD’s Starlight Cafe (where light refreshments will be served) or via Zoom.

SCD’s Design Thinking Boot Camps serve as practical explorations of each of the five spaces of human-centered design: Understand, Synthesize, Ideate, Prototype, and Implement. After an introduction of the day’s topic, Boot Camp participants will work in small groups to apply newly learned skills and concepts to real-world problems. These standalone, in-person events are perfect for groups or individuals who want to apply an aspect of human-centered design to a current project, as well as for those who want to explore human-centered design in an experiential way. Open to University of Illinois students, RSOs, groups, faculty, and staff, these events will take place in SCD’s Starlight Cafe.
