URC Brown Bag Series: Remote Journey Map Co-creation

Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Online, Harvard ID required, Workshop,

Registration is required. There are 187 seats available.

Description: Adapting a journey map exercise to an online activity may feel daunting, but the process and results can yield a treasure trove of actionable insights. In this presentation, we’ll share the experience of conducting a journey mapping exercise with college students online during the pandemic. You’ll learn how we developed our streamlined journey map template and how we used it during the session to capture the participant’s process, tools, and perceived level of effort with completing course assignments. We’ll discuss techniques for making the session as easy as possible for the participants and how to effectively analyze what can sometimes be complicated data. We will provide links to our journey map template and rapport-building questions that you can adapt for your own work.
