Incorporating Design Thinking in the Classroom to Facilitate Learning ExperiencesDate Released: 28 September 2017
Dr. Kapadia's Nord Grant was used to attend Stanford d.school’s Teaching and Learning Studio workshop on Design Thinking.
Design Thinking is a methodology that uses logic, imagination, and systemic reasoning to find the most efficient solutions to complex problems. Faculty can use this methodology with their students to increase engagement; improve critical and collaborative thinking; and foster an understanding of the real-world implications of their education.
In her interactive workshop, Dr. Kapadia will provide strategies for faculty to apply Design Thinking in their course development. Participants will walk away with tips for using creative practices to meet course outcomes and designing a curriculum that fits the needs of both students and faculty.
