Why every day of higher ed can't be like what we did today

Liz Gerber — General

Even 7 year olds get the importance of what we are trying to do. Walking out of leadership studio with my 7 year old daughter this morning, she looked at me and said, "Mom, we're going to all work together to make the world a better place." "Yes, we are," I replied

Post its, lots of ideas

Julia Zhuang — General

Sometimes it is good to move forward and build (even just a simple prototype) before ideas are fully flushed out.

5 years ago

Shannon Cherayil — General

In the building stage, it was a little difficult to put our concepts into tangible objects.

5 years ago

Kenneth Hunter — General

Moving from "how do we" into brainstorming and then brainstorming into more developed thought.

5 years ago

Shannon Cherayil — General

Is it better to try to rush our studios at home so they keep moving through?

5 years ago

Liz Gerber - I like to think of it as creating a sense of urgency for problems needing to be solved and therefore little time to dawdle. Feels more positive than "rushing" to me. My two cents.

Moving forward on ideas so quickly was out of my comfort zone, but helpful.

Defer Judgement during brainstorms! All ideas help

5 years ago

Avery Bellis — General

the best/ most out of the box ideas come out after you have exhausted a lot of your first instinctual ideas, I don't believe we had enough time to exhaust these ideas in order to get to the really good and original ideas.

5 years ago

Ritu Parekh — General

I wish the technical workshops were longer/ we had the opportunity to do more than one.

Isabel Balazs — General

The intersection between theatre and design: it exists!

DFA Fellows love caffeine

5 years ago

Lars Rasmussen — General

The largest will be thinking of the implementation approach and impact early on. Also, a better understanding of the entire DFA process.

5 years ago

Virgil "Buzz" Archer — General

narrowing and reframing challenge statements. Team management techniques.

5 years ago

Justin Hatfield — General

I really like the break-out skill sessions!

5 years ago

Shannon Cherayil — General

I liked how it was a comprehensive over view of the entire design process. The atmosphere was kept energetic and stimulating too.

5 years ago

Kenneth Hunter — General

People just need to focus on what they want to do to determine what the best thought of development and to use service design to explain how the product would work.

5 years ago

Libby Perold — General

Different ways to implement asides from a startup

5 years ago

Marc Bouchet — General

Going rapidly into ideation and prototyping without any time to let ideas sit and mix was rough but also created constraints that became interesting to deal with.

the sugar crash was harsh

Ways that Design Thinking aren't restricted to "designers." Byron's workshop was great.

More fruit snacks and Peanut MnM's tomorrow please!

Ehan Gnanendran — General

The skills session for app design was difficult at times; however, my laptop was also not working properly.

5 years ago

Ehan Gnanendran — General

I learned effective ways to prototype. I also learned about the phases of empathy and the importance of it in terms of design.

5 years ago

Julia Zhuang — General

How to briefly and clearly explain the design process to someone. To write out secondary and primary research on post-its to aide synthesis.

5 years ago

Ritu Parekh — General

Research doesn't need to take months or even weeks, just move on!

5 years ago

Virgil "Buzz" Archer — General

would like more clarity on proper interview techniques

Spencer Gellman — General

How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?

What is the best reason for the extremely fast-paced nature of this workshop?

5 years ago

Sonja Ellicott — General

Will there be some Arduino resources/ FAQ on the Loft?

5 years ago

Justin Hatfield — General

Synthesis workshops could have been a little bit more detailed, or less rushed. It seemed we should have went into more depth.

5 years ago

Sunjeev Devulapalli — General

There were a couple things that were said so quickly that I couldn't quite grasp hold of them, like the actor/audience thing.

5 years ago

Lars Rasmussen — General

The matrices were definitely a great organization strategy. Also, the power of even a very quick brainstorming or modeling session can be significant.

5 years ago

Avery Bellis — General

some of the lessons were dense in subject matter but were rushed so a lot of the material got lost rather than absorbed

5 years ago

Maciej Biernacki — General

Getting solid ideas out quickly during the ideation phase was tricky
