I am co-teaching a Cross-Cultural design course at the Stanford d.School in
the spring. The course is a collaboration between graduate students at
Stanford and graduate students at Peking University. Stanford students
travel to China in early spring to do user research. The Chinese students
take a design intensive course in the winter to prepare for the design
projects they do with the Stanford students in the spring. And, the
projects are actually done for corporate sponsors of the class so students
are working for real clients.
This is the second year that the course is being taught we thought it would
be great if we could find mentors for the Chinese students at Peking
Do you know of any awesome interaction designers, industrial designers, or
user researchers in the Peking area or have any leads on where to look?
