Start projects on a good note by introducing studio resources and building a good foundation for their projects! Share your studio’s goals for each projects and help teams align them with their own goals. Every DFA team has the capacity to get to Test, and this is your chance to show the team how they will get there.
Outputs: Teams review the resources available, have their project timeline, and a tangible goal to reach in the next two weeks.
WashU kicked off their projects by holding a design sprint. At the design sprint, the studio introduced the leaders, DFA Resources like the DFA Facebook group, semester timeline, and studio space. Then, they led a session introducing the HCD process and actually going through all of the steps in the afternoon. The studio held the workshop to provide an overview of the process to new members and help them get to know each other! Check out their kickoff slides here and their welcome packet here!
