Ticketed event: $25.00
Our learning goals for participants in this session are to:
o Assist them in recognizing struggles students have with creative idea generation
o Teach them how to use Design Heuristics to aid idea generation
o Help them plan the integration of Design Heuristics into their own courses.
Students often have difficulty generating multiple creative ideas for design problems. “Design Heuristics” is an empirically derived and validated approach to product design ideation; our research has shown that concepts created by engineering students who used Design Heuristics were more complex, creative designs. This workshop will include a review of relevant research on idea generation and an introduction to this research grounded creativity tool. Participants will practice using the Design Heuristics to generate concepts for design tasks and discuss ways to implement it effectively in their classrooms. This workshop is applicable to DEED members and beyond!
