Hyper Island has been described as a "Digital Harvard" and guess what?! I am flying there on Monday! I am super excited to have been invited as I have admired Hyper Island's approach for a long time and I am fascinated yet still very curious as to how it all works ( and I have never been to Sweden before ) I am going to spend two days with sixty design students from international backgrounds and a wide range of disciplines, who are embarking up a six week course on "User Experience and Interaction Design"
My two days with the students will be focused on guiding them through the design process, focusing on the research phase in relation to designing public services for the future of Sweden. I will be introducing them to different tools and techniques from service design. Check out the videos below to get a flavour of what I will be working with...

From what I have seen many of the students tweet so we will be using the hashtag #PSDhyperisland ( public service design hyperisland )

I arrive on the 17th and then fly to Norway on the 20th so if you are in Stockholm and want to say hello give me a tweet!
