CELENZA

We offer innovative university degrees taught in English by industry leaders from around the world, aimed at giving our students meaningful and creatively satisfying top-level professional futures. We think the future is bright if you make it so.

This course will present a view of how human behavior, perception, and information is changing due to rapid technological development across the world, and the implications and responsibility this has on makers of tech & AI.

We’ll discuss how bias, memory, attention, access, and influence impacts how we think, communicate, and design. We’ll also explore ways to unearth and challenge our own inherent biases and habits.

We’ll apply this thinking through exercises and projects that explore how to uncover bias in the design process and how to unite global teams together towards a greater awareness of their audience.

Lauren Celenza is an international designer, researcher, and advocate. She currently serves as a Senior Designer at Google Maps, working with a global team to make maps more accessible and relevant for emerging cities around the world.

Her work has taken her across 6 continents, where she listens, documents, and co-designs with local communities. She recently led the redesign of Google Maps navigation for motorbikes, now launched across India, Southeast Asia, and Kenya.
