What can the DesignEd process do for you?

The DesignEd process centers around developing unconstrained solutions to any challenge. From the classroom to the board room, DesignEd provides a path to success.

Alternative methods provide alternative results

We design outside of the box to understand what potential exists in you and your objectives.

Actions speak louder than words

Rapid prototyping captures ideas quickly and puts them to work. Come with your ideas, leave with achievable actions.

The DesignEd Process

We facilitate a structured and collaborative approach to generate and develop ideas in order to address challenges and overcome obstacles. Our process consists of five key components:

1. Define the Problem
We begin with empathic listening, discussion, observation, and reflection, to better understand and identify current challenges, opportunities, and needs within a course.

2. Create and Consider Many Options
We brainstorm and visualize new ideas, concepts, and learning experiences within the course.

3. Refine Selected Options
We apply convergent thinking to focus and refine our options. We explore multiple iterations of an idea before executing the potential solution or enhancement. Then, we determine the resources needed and create the plan of action.

4. Implement and Evaluate
We thoughtfully implement new ideas, concepts, and learning experiences for one full semester. At the conclusion of the semester, we gather student and faculty summative feedback and evaluate its impact.

5. Repeat
Using this feedback we reflect, review, discuss, and make modifications to the course design as needed.
