Workshop topics

How to innovate and bring out inner creativity?


Experience design is driven by consideration of the moments of engagement, or touchpoints, between people and the product, service, event, or environment and the ideas, emotions, and memories that these moments create.

Goal of this workshop is to understand and create Experience by means of Experience map/ Mental Map, User Persona and Contextual Inquiry around a service/product that participants are well aware of.

This is a hands-on workshop where all the participants would be sitting on floor, drawing hangman on charts, enacting cowboys, and share their stories.

Aim: Main objective of the workshop is to explore, understand and execute design thinking. It will teach students how to bring innovation by thinking laterally.

Format of workshop is four steps: Seminar | Ideation | Hands-on sessions | Presentation

Innovation in Design by Ideation


Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing and communicating new ideas. Ideation is an essential part of design process, both in education and practice. Knowing the right tools and practices to validate large number of ideas quickly is the key.

The goal of this workshop is to make students aware of those practices and use them effectively in the job. Brainstorming is a group creativity technique by which a group tries to find a solution for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its members. This workshop provides the opportunity to apply brainstorming techniques for ideating innovative design solutions to business problems in different domains.

Aim: Main objective of this workshop is to make students aware of those practices and use them effectively in the job.

Format of workshop is four steps: Seminar | Ideation | Hands-on sessions | Presentation
