Assistive Tech Design Workshop: Caregiver Experience

  • Mayo Civic Center (map)

This fast-paced, hands-on workshop will focus on how to use design thinking to help caregivers thrive. Participants will “sprint” from starting from a real or perceived barrier to developing an idea to address it in just 90 minutes. Each participant will walk away with a new understanding of the design process and how it might support caregivers — plus a real idea of their own to put this into action.

This workshop will be facilitated by the civic design nonprofit Our City in partnership with the Assistive Tech Challenge. The Assistive Tech Challenge is a business pitch competition hosted by DMC Discovery Square to facilitate greater independence for individuals with disabilities and the daily challenges they face. Ideas that emerge from the workshop will be well-prepared to submit to the Challenge.

This workshop is embedded within the Transform conference, so you will be joined by Transform attendees in exploring design thinking.
