Building Design-Based Engagements for Practice & Product


Product development utilizes many forms of feedback, but often fails to build deeper design relationships with their users. Meanwhile schools and educators are demanding more personalized solutions that meet the needs of their diverse communities. This workshop will engage participants in designing feedback loops, a strategy to build meaningful relationships through design-based engagements of product and practice. In building feedback loops, product developers and school-based practitioners can collaborate to create impactful technology for education.
