Design thinking refers to strategies and processes traditionally used to develop new products and designs. Design thinking’s focus on user needs had made it a popular technique for problem-solving outside of the realm of traditional design. Problems are tackled deliberately, in a step-by-step manner that reveals the creativity in everyone.
Participants in an introductory workshop will be presented with a realistic scenario involving a strategic challenge at a university. They will be led through the design thinking process in a virtual brainstorming environment, and emerge with actionable ideas that could be implemented. This highly-interactive workshop will give participants a foundational understanding of design thinking techniques and introduce new methods for collaboratively solving problems.
Introductory workshops are typically held over two 2-hour virtual sessions. They work well for groups of 3 or more.
