Description

Join us for the first workshop for AquaHacking Challenge 2018! This workshop will focus on Design Thinking and has been crafted to give AquaHacking teams a meaningful introduction to the principles and frameworks of design thinking. The objective of the workshop is to empower teams to design meaningful and feasible solutions with the end-user in mind.

The workshop will be facilitated by leading Design Thinking experts from the National Innovation Team at IBM Canada. This is an exclusive opportunity for AquaHacking participants to learn from top leaders in the field of tech and innovation.

What you can expect to learn at the workshop:

  • Introduction to Design Thinking as a framework
  • How to conduct meaningful end-user research
  • How to integrate user feedback into your solution
  • How to apply user-centred design to your solution
  • Practical exercises to use as you develop your solution

Participants will also be able to connect directly with design thinking mentors to ask specific questions about how to apply design thinking to their idea or solution.

Note: We encourage all participants to attend the workshop in-person if possible but we understand that some teams are at a distance that prevents them from joining on-site. It will be possible to participate in the workshop remotely as long as you have access to the internet. We suggest that your team gather in one location so that you can fully engage in the activities. We will be sharing the virtual participation details including the materials that you will need to prepare before the workshop. Please register for the "Virtual Participant" ticket if you are planning to participate virtually.
