The Impact of Human Centered Design and Storytelling (Bay Area)
As independent schools endeavor to make a positive impact in their local communities, they have become more cognizant of the power of effectively partnering around shared goals with other community organizations. Human-Centered Design (HCD) and storytelling serve as vital tools in supporting educators and students to move from good intentions to positive impact. Our first Impact Lab session will explore how these two practices serve to develop empathy and guide thinking and acting when it comes to solving complex social challenges.
During this dynamic and interactive workshop participants will:

Gain an understanding of the Human-Centered Design process and how it has helped schools and communities move their work forward

Learn about and practice “empathic listening”

Examine the connection between empathy and storytelling as a means for  social change

Explore a variety of effective storytelling techniques  (imaginative, digital, cultural)

Apply their learning to projects underway or planned for in their schools to promote active citizenship

This workshop is the first in a four-part series. We invite you to learn more about each session and hope that you will join us for one, two, or all four sessions.
