Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs Presents

Theory to Practice (T2P): Human-Centered Design

11/14/18, 11:30 AM

About this event

The Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center (PNLC) hosts a "Theory to Practice" (T2P) lunch hour learning series to take what Humphrey students are learning in the classroom and to discuss what this looks like in practice in the sector. Topics of discussion will range from the public and nonprofit sectors, to leadership and management.

Bring your lunch and join us on November 14th for a
Theory to Practice session with Sook Jin Ong!

Human-centered design, also known as design thinking, has been brought up as a way of pushing meaningful innovation and systems change in the public sector. The focus on humans and context, the emphasis on iterative cycles of trying ideas and improving on feedback received, and the recognition of public value drives its application in government agencies, non-profit organizations, foundations, and community organizations.

Learn about the design principles that are at the core of this way of creative problem-solving, and how you can adapt these learnings into your work, even if you may not see yourself as an innovator or be in innovation-related jobs. Creative, thoughtful problem solving is something that can be practiced in all areas of advancing the common good.
