LIVE: Infusing Humanity into Technology

June 24, 1:00pm MT

Over the past 20 years, the people designing software and tech products have drifted further and further from the humanities. At the same time, the products that those technologists are designing have become ubiquitous.

As a species, we’re constantly interacting with phones, computers, the Internet and software that ties our digital lives together. In many organizations, work is being done without giving proper consideration to its impact on either individual people or our society as a whole.

In this session, we’ll illustrate-with a range of examples-why a humanist approach to product design is essential. Then we’ll break out into individual teams, and each team will perform a humanist design review of a upcoming fictional product. Finally, the teams will present their products and their findings to the group.

WORK: Innovation Therapy-Breaking Through Organizational Barriers
