Approaches and topics
in innovation education
- The Socratic Questioning
I utilize Socratic Questioning in order to help students understand how to question their logic and examine the logic of their peers.
- Psychotherapy and Design
I use principles of psychotherapy to explain design research. My classes often include topics in Adlerian psychology, existentialism, rational emotive behaviorism, and systems thinking.
I believe in a "Facilitator Approach" in learning environments wherein I focus on how students learn most effectively and tailors his pedagogical approach accordingly.
- Human-centered focus
I heavily integrate service design perspectives, user-centered design perspectives, and design strategy methods.
- Process Development
I encourage students to develop their own design tools in order to help them develop their own design process.
I rely on various types of media (including podcasts, videos, etc) to make the classes feel more authentic.
- Design Strategy
- User Experience Research
- Creative Team Management
