Goal: Working with the IDEO.org's Amplify team, I was commissioned to design a research strategy for the Syrian refugee community. Since nobody could do field research in Syria, the plan was to create an internal dialog so that my team could better understand this region's complexity as it pertains to education.

Process: I began by discovering who the user personas were for the project, and tracking who communicated with who. Interviewing experts led to some strong suggestions. The design visuals were used as an internal document to inform the upcoming challenge team.

Results: 750 contributions, 5 projects funded.

How might we improve education and expand learning opportunities for refugees around the world?

To do research about refugees worldwide, we focused on a few key regions. I brought my experience from Jordan and INJAZ Al-Arab to highlight key issues of Syria. Learn about the challenge at OpenIDEO here.
