Human-centred design is a creative approach to problem solving. It focuses on understanding the needs of the people who have a problem in order to design appropriate solutions.

On this course you’ll learn about the five-stage process and have the opportunity to take part in practical activities to try each stage of the process.

You’ll learn why this method of thinking is effective, how to use it, and which jobs use the process.

You’ll also become familiar with how to collect the right information and data to prove a solution can work in the real world.
