Mini-exercise (10-15 min): Think of how a family member or friend might translate into a persona. Develop bullet points for component (see template below, which you can download as a pdf here).
In practice, personas are based on research. For the purpose of this exercise though, you do not need to conduct a directed storytelling session (introduced in next module) or do other research. Here, you are just getting thinking about how personas work. You are running through a hypothetical scenario.
You can keep track of your brainstorming for your own notes, but this mini-exercise is not designated for peer review.
