Learn By Watching Others Think Out Loud
What We Are About
We are a helpful and informal group that meets for a hands-on design workshop. We aim for peer learning, support, and friendship among all skill levels. This is a good way to build confidence in your problem-solving skills. As well as get ready for a big meeting, or practice for interviews.
What To Expect
First, there will be a brief whiteboard demonstration. Then, we will break into pairs, pick a challenge and head to a whiteboard. One person will be the designer and the other the host. For 15 minutes the designer will work through the design challenge on the whiteboard. They may ask questions of the host as needed. They'll think out loud while writing to show how they are exploring and solving the challenge. When the 15 minutes is up, we share our solutions. Then we swap roles and do it again with a different challenge.
