Elliot Felix at EDUCAUSE 2011

Eliot Felix http://elliotfelix.com/ presented at EDUCAUSE 11 his slideshare is here http://www.slideshare.net/elliotfelix/learning-space-service-design-eli2012

I first met Elliot at the U21 forum 'Design of Learning Spaces'.
I think Elliot hits the nail on the head with his approach. I especially resonate with slide 7 and I am at last seeing some progress towards Design Thinking methodology at my home institution.
I referenced Tim Brown and Design thinking in my post
http://learningteachingspaces.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/design-thinking.html

It's good to see Elliot is still making designers think about what it is they are designing but more importantly who and for what purpose are they / we designing.

I have recently  been involved with two projects where the architects never even got as far as thinking about the contents in the container (see slide 7 as referenced above).

Unfortunately I know that this is quite usual within the sector.
