Protocol Overview and Instructions:
Checking in can commonly mean to check in with your team members but it can also be with other people- stakeholders, locals, and your team. Using these instructions and prior interview experience, crafting a proper and productive interview can be a simple task.
Interview Protocol Directions
Checking in with the students from time to time, taking the temperature and making sure we still feel organized and on target is important. Also, touching base with the client, gathering further information, and providing updates through a long experience with student and staff illness due to COVID gives insight.
What was Challenging? Balancing standard curriculum and this experience. Being able to shut off one and jump to the other.
Where did I find success? The reward to seeing student engagement and involvement. The buy in that students modeled of this project.
"I love when students step up their game and you can see them growing in a new light."
"It’s fun to be able to get meet new people and see them get excited about who we are and what we do."
Meet the Educator:
Hello, my name is James Larsen and for the past 16 years I have taught Printing and Graphics at the Careerline Tech Center. Since 2013 I have been actively involved with futurePREP’d including… IChallengeU, Unite4Insight, FUZE, the Academy, and Summer Career Camp. As someone who teaches in a creative field, I absolutely love design thinking. Over the years I have been able to have many of my students pair up and work with local business, companies, and organizations while experiencing the reward of PBL and and the creative process.
"I love being able to take a ‘Deep Dive’ into the ‘why’ of new projects using Design Thinking. Each stage offers new protocols and possibilities that make Design Thinking and PBL projects always exciting."
