Fall Practice Based Studios in the Center for Social Design..
SD 350/SD 5350, PRACTICE-BASED STUDIO (3 CREDITS)
TUESDAY 9-3 OR FRIDAY 9-3
In this immersive, semester-long studio course, you will learn and practice the fundamentals of human-centered design, a collaborative process that uses methods like one-on-one interviews, user workshops, and rapid prototyping to ensure that your designs reflect the needs, behaviors, and preferences of your users. Whether you’re a graphic designer, a sculptor, or a filmmaker, you can use human-centered design to ensure your work is created with, not just for, communities.
From designing a food truck that brings fresh produce to urban food deserts to reimagining the HIV testing process to reduce stigma, this course tackles issues that matter. Students work as a single interdisciplinary project team with a community partner for the entire semester, so you will gain deep experience in an issue impacting Baltimore. The course’s topic and community partner will be announced in the beginning of the semester; past partners have included Baltimore City Health Department, Baltimore City Public Schools, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
