I am wondering what type of design projects you all are working on outside of the classroom.  I primarily have used design teaching in the classroom and community center class settings.    However, I also work within communities and would like to incorporate some design activities or day workshops style projects to engage community members of all ages.  If anyone has experience on this I would love to get some feedback.

We did the Ready Set Design workshop with our teaching artists at CAL, and it was interesting to see adults re-frame how to think through a challenge.

I like the idea of multi-generational design challenges. We do a lot of work in libraries, especially over the summer. I’m going to see if we can do the design intro workshop with challenges both with intergenerational teams and dividing up in age-centric teams to see what happens.
