Effective action and designs of products, services and strategies are developed and refined through thoughtful reflection and constructive dialogue of perspectives. Constructive Critique teaches approaches to design critique, feedback and collaboration through dialogue and interaction with material designs.
All to often, feedback - if we have time to give it at all - on ideas, plans, pitches, stories and presentations is delivered impulsively, identifying weaknesses over strengths and advocating for our own view over others’. As a participant, you will be introduced to and practice techniques for discussing and evaluating ideas, plans, pitches, stories and presentations in order to identify future action and designs. Participants will also use insight gained from facilitated conversations to iterate on their personal approach to providing feedback.
We welcome any and all Federal employees to join us for this course. Having a basic understanding of human-centered design is helpful, but it is not a prerequisite.
This course will leverage participants professional context to apply approaches and techniques taught. The course contains short presentation segments on theory and background but the majority of the course will be spent actively applying techniques for critique - facilitated conversations, role playing, and presentation. A brief pre-work assignment may apply.
Lodging and meals are not included in the tuition.
