ESR 173 Lab 7: Empathy-based Design - with Hydroviv

Activity

Purpose:

  • Engage in human-centered design process and applications of “ways of knowing” through an Entrepreneurial lens
    • applied more broadly as empathy-centered design for both humans & the environment
  • Apply knowledge of pollutants to real-world solutions
  • Develop an understanding of United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals associated with water

Background:

Human-centered design process

 

What is Human Centered Design? - IDEO.org

 

From IDEO.org

 

Human-centered design is a creative approach to problem solving and the backbone of our work at IDEO.org. It’s a process that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor made to suit their needs. Human-centered design is all about building a deep empathy with the people you’re designing for; generating tons of ideas; building a bunch of prototypes; sharing what you’ve made with the people you’re designing for; and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world.

 

Human-centered design consists of three phases. In the Inspiration Phase you’ll learn directly from the people you’re designing for as you immerse yourself in their lives and come to deeply understand their needs. In the Ideation Phase you’ll make sense of what you learned, identify opportunities for design, and prototype possible solutions. And in the Implementation Phase you’ll bring your solution to life, and eventually, to market. And you’ll know that your solution will be a success because you’ve kept the very people you’re looking to serve at the heart of the process.

 

In many ways, this approach to design allows for space to examine motivations for product design, and ways that entrepreneurs can address real global challenges through the lens of benefiting all communities and those impacted by the disruption of natural cycles.

 

Example Application of Human-Centered Design:

 SmartLife - Designing a Scalable Water and Hygiene Business in Nairobi, Kenya

 

 

UN Sustainable Development Goals: relating to Water

Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all

Goal 10: Reduce inequality within and among countries

Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

Responses from Dr. Eric Roy - Q&A

 

Follow the included links to see what questions Dr. Eric Roy, founder of Hydroviv was presented, and his responses (recording from a previous term). Make special note of responses associated with Entrepreneurship and the role of business in designing solutions to real-world problems. 

Case Study: Hawai’i Groundwater Vulnerability

 

For this lab, you’ll be reflecting on issues, and designing solutions, associated with groundwater contamination by salt water & pesticides in Hawai’i. Use the following links as reference material for your exploration; optional supplemental materials can be found in a subfolder in the Week 7 Lab folder. 

 

Case Study: Hawaii Groundwater Vulnerability

Interactive Story Map: Water Stewardship in Pu?uloa, O?ahu

Instructions Overview:

 

  • Review all Background information provided in this lab, including the Q&A video provided by Dr. Eric Roy of Hydroviv.
  • Complete this activity packet which includes reflection questions, and a human-centered design activity requiring you to develop and illustrate or construct a prototype using materials available to you (15 points for “Activity”)

 

NOTE: You have the option of working with a partner from class; the same packet can be submitted by both individuals for full credit.

 

  • Participate in the Lab 7 Reflections discussion board (10 points for “Reflections”)

 

NOTE: Additional specific instructions provided in packet for activities and reflections.

 

Formatting Tip: How to select what option you want within Google Doc

Modified from Interactive Checklists in Google Docs

  • Left-click one time on a checkbox, which will select the entire group of checkboxes.
  • Now left-click one more time on the same checkbox, which will now just select the single checkbox you have clicked on.
  • Now right-click on the same checkbox.
  • This will pop up a window where you can choose a new bullet to replace the checkbox.
  • Choose the checkmark icon.
  • The empty checkbox will now be replaced with a checkbox, indicating the item has been selected

Tips for completing this lab:

  • Take time to read through the materials, and write down notes along the way to support your design process. There’s a lot of information here to help inform your process; start with links in this document, and if you need more inspiration check out the supplemental materials in the Lab folder.
  • When creating your prototype or solution, think creatively about how to communicate it! Use materials you have around you to make a prototype that gives you a more hands-on experience for the lab. In-person, we would be crafting mock-ups of products and sharing out as a class, which has great value. Here are some examples of products or solutions developed in another remote class for this lab with items they had available:
