NSWM Design Day II

Join Us for Design Day II on October 1st!

NSWM Design Day II is an opportunity to teach participants the process of conceiving and testing a prototype for their own idea. During the Design Day, you’ll map out the problem and pick an important place to focus on, create a persona, a journey map, a storyboard, and a paper prototype. Finally, you’ll test your prototype on other Design Day participants.  Facilitated by Dr. Kristina Jaskyte Bahr, Associate Professor at the University of Georgia, School of Social Work and NSWM Board Member.

Intended Outcomes:

  • Participants will have a basic understanding of a Prototyping process, different types of prototypes, and how to test a prototype and receive feedback.
  • Participants will create a low-fidelity prototype of their idea, ready for testing on real or representative users.
  • Participants will get an opportunity to test their prototype on Design Day participants.
