Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Through a live demonstration, we will showcase a group of focused design techniques known collectively as a Design Jam. Design jams are about looking at a particular design challenge and thinking-by doing. Although they often have a component of brainstorming, they involve additional activities, including paper prototyping, and storytelling with personas and scenarios. After the design jam, we will share experiences of teaching design techniques in ischools.
