Get and Give Better Design Feedback Through Critique

Monday, March 14
9:30AM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 402-403
110 E 2nd St

Collaboration requires us to share our work and collect other’s thoughts in order to understand whether our designs are meeting the project’s objectives. But we often struggle with collecting feedback. We get less than helpful comments that seem irrelevant or unclear. Or we find we’re getting reactions at inopportune times rather than points in the process when they’d have been useful in informing decisions.

How might we structure conversations to collect useful feedback and make discussions productive? Participants in this workshop will learn best practices, tips, and techniques to make giving and receiving design feedback a process that strengthens designs, collaboration, & communication.
