Ideation Sessions

Very often in the product design major, we find ourselves in ideation sessions, thinking creatively about solutions to a problem.  This past week, our program director Barry Kudrowitz and some of us students had the privilege of teaching some nursing students about creative problem solving and idea generation.  Through this quick 4 hour session, the groups of nurses got to come up with a bunch of ideas and narrow it down to one that they eventually were able to prototype using a wide variety of materials. At the end, each group presented their prototype in the form of a skit. One group even had a costume involved in their skit/prototype which was fantastic.  Getting to see a group of nurses grow creatively and help come up with solutions to better the nurse-patient relationship was overwhelmingly amazing.  If you want to learn more about a class that focuses solely on this idea of creativity and idea generation, you can click here for more details!
