    Design for Education/Policy

    From Aug 15 - 18, a group of 20 Habib students, interested in challenges faced by primary and secondary education, attended a 4-day Design Thinking workshop conducted by Minahil Asim. Over the course of the workshop, the students worked with the ILAD School in our neighborhood to learn how human-centered design methods can help understand complex challenges in the primary and secondary school ecosystem. At a talk following the workshop, Minahil talked about the tools researchers and policy experts can use when working in education. Ms Asim shared her experiences using Human-Centred Design, ethnographic and quantitative research methods while working on education-related projects in Pakistan, Sierra Leone & Rwanda. She also talked about her experience with using the Problem Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) framework as a development tool.

    Uncovering Design Ecologies: Thinking in Systems

    This course intends to introduce participants to concepts, approaches and methods in applied systems and complexity theory. We will explore different ways of observing, analyzing, and describing socio-technical systems, with a view to then being able to determine where best to intervene in them, and determine what the nature of those interventions, whether they are artifacts, services, experiences, environments or platforms, should be.
