As an assistant professor I lead weeklong workshops at various design, architecture, and business schools, guiding students through the creative process from ideation to running prototype ready to be pitched to different stakeholders. The course covers a range of content from ideation techniques and rating, business- model prototyping, competitor analysis and differentiation, paper prototyping to lean design techniques and Pecha Kucha-style presentations.
