The Human-Centered Design DeCal - Des Inv 98

is a Berkeley Innovation-hosted, introductory class to design theory and practice, with a focus on human-centered design. Students learn about the design process and industry, practice using industry-standard tools, engage in hands-on activities during class and in homework assignments, and complete a midterm and a final design project solving problems that they care about.

The 2-unit P/NP course meets once a week, 6:00-8:00 PM on Wednesdays in 310 Jacobs Hall during the Fall 2018 semester. There are no prerequisites – this class is for anyone interested in learning about human-centered design. To enroll, please fill out the application at tinyurl.com/f18designdecal by 9/2. Accepted students will be notified on 9/3 and given instructions on how to enroll in the course.
