Join this session for an innovative approach for engaging students in campus recreation through human centered design (HCD). HCD engages participants from the start of the session and places them at the center of an innovative problem-solving design process. HCD focuses on people’s programs, goals, needs, thinking, emotions and behavior in order to create effective design solutions to complex problems that we see as recreation professionals. Join TJ for an informative and motivational session that introduces you to the main themes of HCD to where we can begin brainstorming solutions to today’s biggest issues in campus recreation.
