Interested in learning a new skill or two? Join us for a workshop that will help you walk away with tangible skills you can bring back to your work or team. This intro level workshop follows the belief that tech and design are for EVERYONE!
Co-hosted by DotGov Design / AIGA
How can government adopt design methodologies to become more efficient, modern, and user-friendly? This workshop is a masterclass in HCD from some of government's most creative and accomplished HCD practitioners: Margeaux Akazawa (of HHS, HUD, and more), Scott Weiss (of VA, Presidential Innovation Fellows, and OMB), and Katie Tobin (of the Intelligence Community and more)! These true HCD experts will cover basic methods of human centered design, including topics like user research, ideation, and storytelling, and showcase how these methods can be applied within government to improve the way we work. This workshop is for anyone working inside, with, or for government agencies at the federal, state, local, or tribal levels, or anyone interested in applying design to civic tech!
