Human-Centred Design Workshop for Early Healthcare Startups
The human-centered design workshop is a series of 4 seminars taking participants through how to apply human-centered design and lean startup methodologies in their design sessions. The workshop also presents the importance of having design as part of the primary components of a company. Most participating companies in the workshops are early healthcare and health technology startups looking to gain tools to understand their users better and create more relevant features.
My primary role during the workshop was to assist in the creation of the workshop’s curriculum and co-host the sessions during the seminars with Haig Armen, the interaction professor at Emily Carr University. Working with Haig, I have created most of the workshop slide decks and tools, such as trigger cards, test cards, and learning cards. I am also the primary liaison between the ECU team and all attending companies: answering questions, assigning student designers tasks, and sending attendee packages.
With the success and my display of leadership during the workshops, I was invited by Providence Health Care (PHC) to host the same workshop at the 2017 National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC). You can download the NHLC workshop slides here.
