My contribution to this phase included meeting via Google Hangout to discuss and document our ideas for further developing our product based on feedback.
Our challenges continued to be the same of time and location, but at this point we are used to it, and have adapted, so it doesn't feel so much like a challenge anymore- just Life :) If I were leading students or colleagues through this phase of the process I would follow the same steps we did, but make sure to provide face-to-face time to collaborate.
Effective communication continued to be the most important element of this entire DT process, as it is the only way to elicit and understand ideas from team members in order to design them and bring them to fruition. The power of synergy is amazing, and we employed so many different methods for communication during this process, that every type of idea was able to be expressed and understood. This was a truly powerful experience to work through the entire DT process as part of a design team. I know all members of Team 3ST are moved to actually work together to create this curriculum and program for professional development on stereotyping in education. We have people asking us to design it now so that it can be implemented in school districts and higher ed. We want to do this, and I believe we will, but for a little while we are going to take a necessary break while we all focus on finishing our master's program. Then we can reconvene with fresh eye,s and possibly a little more time on our hands, in which to bring all of these ideas to life. Thanks Team!!
