Short Description: The Creative Industries Prototyping Lab is an initiative of the graduate students in the Comparative Media Studies program at MIT. It is a three-day design thinking workshop where graduate researchers from the program work with local entrepreneurs working in digital creative industries. The first edition of the lab was hosted in Lima, Peru in April 2014 and was sponsored by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, the Intercorp Innovation Lab, and Casa Andina, Peru’s largest hotel chain. Further design workshops are being planned in various cities around the world.
My Role: Creating interaction design and design thinking curriculum for the workshops; teaching wireframing, journey maps, and ideation processes; mentorship for students.
