IDEO.org is proud to announce Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation, a five-week course that we've created in conjunction with Acumen.

Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation
How does the course work? This course is designed with a group-guided learning structure. This means that in order to participate, you'll need to form a team of between 2 and 6 people. Once you have your team, you'll meet each week to learn the human-centered design process via the workshop materials that we've created for you. Along the way, you'll also tackle a social sector design challenge in your community.
How much does the course cost? The course is free. 
When does the course start and how long does it last? The course begins on July 10, 2013 and is designed to be conducted over 5 weeks. However, you can also do the course over a longer period of time if a different pace is right for your team.  
Do I need to be a designer to sign-up for the course? This course is open to all and does NOT require any prior design experience.
Who else is taking the course? You'll join teams from around the world taking this course as part of the leadership classes offered by Acumen. So far over 5,000 people from over 100 countries have registered for +Acumen courses. You'll also have the opportunity to share your learnings, ask questions, and get to know other course participants from around the world via an online Google community.
