Empathy for Design – Tilburg University

Tilburg University
Introductory lecture to New Media Design, for graduating Bachelor students

We create things for other people, and empathy helps us create what they really need.

Empathy helps us understand people’s emotions and helps us create things that people fall in love with. In this workshop, we’ll discuss why empathy is important and practice techniques you can use immediately to help yourself and others feel empathy.
