Design Thinking is not just about Post-Its and cardboard projects. It’s a human-centered process and mindset to tackling complex problems through an empathy lens. By giving students the skills to think and act like a designer, they learn how to solve problems in a way that contributes positively to their community. Not only does using this process increase student engagement, improve critical and collaborative thinking, and foster an understanding of the real-world implications of their learning, Design Thinking also allows students to fail fast and learn by doing rather than avoiding failure by striving for initial perfection. And hey, it’s a lot of fun!
This crash course will provide an overview of Design Thinking, as well as tips, tricks, and strategies (and a few bad jokes) to re-engineer a traditional lesson to reflect the Design Thinking mindset.

I am passionate about anything and everything that engages students in deep, relevant learning. Teaching students to think and act like a designer gives them the tools to become change makers.
