Restorative Justice and Human-Centered Design Project

In this experiential, project-based course, the Center on Negotiation and Mediation invites students to participate in the process of further developing its restorative justice initiatives. Students will learn about the fundamentals of design thinking, restorative justice, and problem-solving as they create restorative justice project prototypes using a human-centered design (HCD) approach. HCD methods provide the opportunity for reimagining the way communities build relationships, transform conflict, and address legal problems. Students will explore how the Center can serve and learn with and from communities. During the semester, students will meet with potential stakeholders in order to build innovative and effective prototypes that respond to the needs and interests of people and address real-world challenges through restorative justice. The course will culminate in presentation and showcase of design prototypes. Eval Method:Class participation, course assignments, final project presentation, and final project Class Materials: Readings and course materials will be provided and posted on Canvas.
