Workshop - Meaningful innovation canvas

Rosa de Vries & Jeroen van Grondelle | University of Applied Sciences Utrecht

Students all over the world currently are forced to study at home. In this workshop we want to explore together whether this innovation also has meaningful aspects. And how this "imposed innovation" can be arranged as meaningful as possible despite everything. The University of Applied Sciences Utrecht conducts research into how to design innovation in a meaningful way. A “canvas" has recently been developed with which can engage professionals in early discussions about what makes or could make a concrete innovation meaningful to them.

Maximum of 16 participants.

How to get the most out of LXDCON’20

The first week in June will be packed with a variety of LX design activities for you to choose from. 

We've decided to not just do 1 conference day (June 5), but also add a global design sprint in the days following up to that Friday.

June 1 through June 4 consists of workshops and meet-ups to get the most out of your design sprint and learn from and with each other. June 5 will be the conference day.

This is a global event with participants from across the world in different time zones. That's why we arranged the program in a way that enables you to participate in a way that suits your schedule:

Quick and easy: 
Cherry pick the activities that fit your schedule and watch them either live or the recording afterwards. Ideal if you're short on time and you know what you're looking for. 3 to 5 hours in total.

Get active: 
Participate in (some of) the live events like virtual workshops and debates to dig deeper into what matters to you. If you're up for it do the LX design sprint and show us your expertise. 5 to 10 hours in total.

Go all in: 
Join us from start to finish. Challenge yourself by completing the design sprint, actively participate in all live events and connect with the LX design community. We'll see you each day of the week! 10 to 20 hours in total.

All live events will be recorded for you to watch later so don't worry about missing anything!
