Development of a teaching format with simulations and inquiries

Human Centered Design methods were used to evaluate a novel teaching format.

Not only products can be developed according to the Human Centered Design (HCD) process, but also services or processes. In a project of the School of Life Sciences FHNW we applied HCD methods for the development and evaluation of the novel teaching format. For example, qualitative interviews, questionnaires, and classroom simulations were conducted. An iterative proceeding was chosen, that means evaluations were carried out at different points in time. In each case, the results were used for further development of the teaching format.

Further possibilities for a development according to HCD methods

The Human Centered Design approach offers numerous tools and methods to develop different things: Products, services, processes, workplaces, spaces or signs. Everywhere where people have to or want to do something in their job or everyday life and where it is important that they can do this, depending on the objective, efficiently, effectively, safely or with a lot of joy.
