The ability to empathise is one of the most powerful tools in a designer’s toolkit. At its most basic level, empathy is the ability to recognise emotions and thought processes that are being experienced by another person. It’s important for designers because it allows you to genuinely understand the motivations, needs, wants and desires of your target audiences. This in turn will help you to build effective strategies and ultimately design better products.
During this 2.5 hour workshop, Karen Reilly (UX Director, iterate) and Kori Schagunn (drama coach) will create a safe, playful and fun environment to guide you through improvisation techniques and games that will help you in 3 main ways:
- Increase your ability to empathise
- Increase your confidence to run engaging and insightful workshops with stakeholders
- Create more meaningful UX deliverables
