In collaboration with Global Family Research Project and the Early Learning Lab, we are proud to release "5 Benefits of Human-Centered Design Thinking for Family Engagement." In this brief, we share how human-centered design thinking empowers families and creates equity, challenges assumptions and biases, helps educators to consider families’ wishes and desires, promotes collaborative decision making, and pushes educators out of their comfort zone. Data for this brief comes from a half-day workshop on human-centered design that was offered as part of NCFL’s 2018 Families Learning Conference. We are grateful to the Children’s Services Council of Broward County for sponsoring the event.
