"Bring cookies." As a graduate student at one of the top schools in the country, Donna worked first as a teaching assistant and then as an instructor. Exciting as the prospect was, she and her peers knew how to be students, but not how to teach. "Bring cookies" to your first and last day of class is basically what she learned in her first and only day of teacher training that first year. And you know what? It works.
Since then, Donna has taught countless of courses and workshops at the undergraduate and graduate level as well as continuing education – In this workshop, she shares what she's learned, what works, what doesn't work, as well as general approaches to teaching, teaching designers, and particularly teaching user experience design.
Expert tip: bring cookies.
