Design thinking is a people-centered approach to problem solving that uses iteration and refinement. The process was made popular by IDEO, an international design and consulting firm, which used the method to create the first usable mouse. Today, critical thinkers in a variety of fields and industries have adopted the method. This course will give teachers new, innovative, creative design thinking approaches that can be rapidly employed in the classroom.

In the one-day workshop, we’ll walk through the design thinking process with a combination of hands-on activities, discussion and presentation.
