Real-time Global Collaboration Design Workshop
dormakaba-vector-logo copy.png

Purdue and the IBE/ID programs are appreciative of dormakaba’s involvement in the IBE+ID Innovation Hackathon. To ensure the event remains on schedule, we wish to provide the following guidelines for student team coaching from dormakaba:

- Industrial Design (ID) students will serve as student team leads, dormakaba will engage with the teams but should not act in an effort to ‘lead’ the teams

- Coaches can be assigned to teams at the request of dormakaba, but this is not a requirement for the event

- Coaching, feedback, and student team engagement should be reserved for designated work times, open team discussions, and meals, and not when content is presented directly to students.

- Communication with students should take place during the IBE+ID Innovation Hackathon; we encourage dormakaba to connect with Ryan Case or directly with students via LinkedIn outside of the IBE+ID Innovation Hackathon.

Anchor 1
People with disabilities are trying to be independent in their everyday life. Still, they often rely on others because our environments are not well designed for such a condition, making them feel vulnerable in most public spaces.
