What to expect in the class:
- There are six modules with multiple sections. In each section, there is video and text content
- There are assignments at the end of each module with worksheets and other resources to help you put what you are learning into practice
- We’ll share examples as we go, and will be using Mural as our tool of choice to demonstrate the method (though you can use other tools if you desire!)
- This class will help you run your first service blueprinting session, so try to come up with a real project to apply this to to help cement your learning.
- You can go at your own pace with the class and take as long as you want to complete, but we do recommend trying to go through it and apply it to a real blueprinting project, so your time commitment depends on how practical you want to get!
