In CEP 817, I learned about design thinking models and modes, particularly Stanford's d. School
modes of Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. Throughout the course I applied these modes to a problem of practice, re-designing MSU's SAT macro, ultimately culminating in a design report. I learned about brainstorming and incubation
and recognized what an important tool incubation has been for me while I program code. In my opinion, CEP 817 was one of the most beneficial classes for my career in computer programming as it better helped me understand the design process.
