During the Basic Track, every single participant has the chance to gain experience in project work, gets better in doing interviews, learns how and when to iterate and more.
In short: we all get prepared for what could happen in projects later on.
During our project work one coach accompanies a team to help when needed, but still gives us the freedom to work on the challenges that occur in a project as a team.
Today I want to tell you a bit more about the D-School days. I'd like to talk about one specific day, the prototyping festival:
After our workshop session all participants of the Basic Track came together to present what they created to the others - a mix of big and small prototypes, little video clips, role plays and more.
As a next step we will test our prototypes with the target users and collect feedback in order to iterate on and improve our product.
As you can see studying at the HPI in Potsdam never gets boring and I learn something new here every day - something about team work, about design thinking or how to build an interactive prototype with a Teensy board.
