Human-Centered Design for Innovation and Creative Problem Solving

Uniquely suited for administrators, faculty and staff at the UW, this workshop examines a methodology for innovation, re-invention and prototyping of solutions and ways of adapting to problems during times of change. This course is delivered via two three-hour Zoom sessions with additional reading and methodological study materials. The first session will introduce the HCD model, and arrange group teams to work with case studies; the second session will focus on the application and teams presenting their prototyped solutions.

Upcoming offerings:

Tuesday and Thursday, August 3 & 5, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Core Strengths — Results Through Relationships

This intensive experiential workshop provides UW managers, directors, and other executives with a practical framework and proven tools for building a culture steeped in collaboration, ownership, and initiative. Prior to the workshop, participants take the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) and their results are then contextualized within a Motivational Value System. With this knowledge, participants learn to deploy different strengths in working with others and dealing with conflict on their teams and also complete an Action Planner for getting better results through relationships.

Upcoming offerings:

Tuesday and Wednesday, July 13 & 14, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
