Design Jam: Brainstorm Innovative Ideas by Focusing on the User
Friday, June 17, 3:30–4:45 PM
Facilitator: Alex Humphreys, Director, JSTOR Labs
JSTOR Labs, which partners with publishers, libraries, and labs to build innovative tools for research and teaching (http://labs.jstor.org), uses “design jams” to come up with its creative products, designs, and tools. A design jam (also called a design studio) is a structured brainstorming technique that focuses on the user, resulting in dozens and even hundreds of new ideas in just a couple of hours. In this Collaboration Lab, we will learn how to design jam by conducting one. Come prepared to participate, to draw, to share your ideas, and to have fun.
