Problem Framing & Design Thinking (Good Prep for Do-a-thon!)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn how to apply design thinking methods to Open Research and Education! This year, OpenCon is focusing on identifying challenges in advancing Open scholarship and working together to build inclusive, equitable solutions.

If you missed our optional design thinking webinar, come to this unconference session to get a primer on some basic concepts used in design thinking: a set of tools to design thoughtful solutions to problems with humans, empathy, and the bigger picture in mind.

We'll be focusing on problem definition - which may be useful for participants who are interested in submitting challenges to Monday's do-a-thon but don't know how to frame the issue they are interested in tackling. Participants will get a chance to walk through exercises and also consult with Lorraine about do-a-thon submissions.
