What will I learn?


Innovations in Inclusive Design

When it comes to technology, research shows that men, women and gender-fluid people go about things in different ways. This class explores how an appreciation of human-centered design, integrated with gender and intersectionality, can result in better design products, product design processes and user experiences for all. We will be combining concepts and methods from gendered innovations research with the design thinking process to develop a gender inclusive design toolkit for tech. You will work in interdisciplinary teams with project partners from tech companies on design challenges, as well as engage in group discussions with experts from industry and academia.
