Designed a game that challenges players to improve their skills as interviewers by giving the interviewees 'role cards' to take on.
As part of the HPI d.Schools 'Experience Day,' students get to rotate through a variety of workshops to practice various skillsets in design thinking. I chose the 'Interviewing' skillset along with my co-coach, Caro Scheffler.
We also developed Role Cards for interviewers, which were intended to show both interviewer and interviewee how interviewing style can drastically influence the tone, direction, and responses in an interview.
In testing, we found that the exercised worked best when only one side (interviewee or interviewer) took on a role — not both at the same time. When both participants are busy focusing on maintaining a character, neither are able to observe or learn from the exercise.
