Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation Course Wrap-up

Acumen, together with our company crush, offered a course this summer that introduced participants to the concepts of human-centered design and facilitated a project for hands-on practice of human-centered design principles.

This free 5-week course titled Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation equipped participants with the process and methods of human-centered design and had participant groups experiment with these concepts in a design challenge.  Each week we had a reading assignment followed by a workshop. The course also had a Google+ Community allowing participants from around the globe to share progress, ideas, photos, prototypes, etc. Even now people are creating partnerships for future projects on the Google+ forum.

This was a challenging and fun learning experience for us. We encourage you to take this course if it is ever offered again. Thank you Acumen and for offering this course!
