Human-centered design is a way of thinking that places both the people that programs serve and related stakeholders at the center of the design and implementation process. With emphasis on research, ideation, iteration, and prototyping, this process seeks to achieve novel solutions to complex problems. While there are many different HCD processes, all of them, at their core, are rooted in empathy: a comprehensive understanding of the stakeholder(s) involved in the challenge at hand. This hybrid course enables SBC and nutrition practitioners to learn more about how to use HCD to address nutrition-related behavioral challenges. A selected cohort of participants will gain a deeper understanding of how HCD can add value to their work and access a set of practical tools that they can immediately put to use to develop, support and refine nutrition programs.
