612 Shorten Your Design Cycle with Effective Co-creation Sessions
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Thursday, October 24
The traditional approach for designing a learning experience and then gathering content can sometimes also inadvertently include frustrating roadblocks—things like SME wrangling, latecomer reviewers who disrupt design and delivery timelines, and new content that hits the stage at the eleventh hour. With more learning for us to create and quicker turnarounds expected, anything that can help us speed up our design cycles and reduce these kinds of disruptions can be a real win.
Find out how co-creation design sessions can help shorten your design cycle and avoid common delays. In this session you’ll look at methods, approaches, tools, and templates for successful program and content co-creation that result in high-impact, actionable, bought-in designs to accelerate your design and development process. You’ll discuss how to plan and facilitate design sessions that jump start your development process. Then you’ll explore a simple process to engage the right people in a valuable co-creation session that maximizes coordination and minimizes SME level of effort throughout the development process. Finally, you’ll examine how to apply tools and templates to a project you're working on that would benefit from a co-creation design session.
In this session, you will learn:
- Identify projects that would benefit from a design session approach
- Apply key strategies for planning a design session that will have a positive impact on your upcoming project
- Modify provided tools and templates to lead a design session in your organization
- Package the outputs from design sessions into assets that become the foundation of your project
