On Thursday 3 december 2015 we gave our first workshop to the 1st year AO/MD students, a total of 50 students. The focus was UX tools and creative thinking, which we did using the Marshmallow challenge and different questioning or interviewing games.
The aim of these exercises was to introduce the students to working in teams, communicating effectively and gain empathy by using different creative and interview methods.
The result was a successful introductory session, despite the large group. David’s presence, from Patching Zone, was much appreciated as he managed to communicate the aim of our team very effectively.
The general feedback from staff was positive, with many colleagues popping in to see how the students were doing.
The students were very reactive and enthusiastic to our suggestions.
