This course is an introduction to the Design Thinking methodology whose objective is its adaptation to the field of education.
Design Thinking is a methodology for generating ideas through co-creation. Based on an innovative proposal, it places the users (students, teachers, educational community) at the center in order to understand them and respond to their real needs.
This approach is based on projective thought, the axis of work in the field of product design, and tries to apply it in different fields of action. Businesses, social entrepreneurs and other innovators have used these methods for decades to create solutions for many different types of challenges.
This is an invitation to experiment with design processes. Let it inspire you to approach challenges differently and experience how Design Thinking adds a new perspective to your work.
As educators, you are already designing every single day—whether it’s finding new ways to teach content more effectively, using your classroom space differently, developing new approaches to connecting with parents, or creating new solutions for your school.
The methods in this workshop are adapted specifically for you and give you the flexibility to work within your existing constraints.
The methodology used is a mixture between theoretical training and workshops training based on real-life examples. Different methods enable the participants to develop and create their solutions for their own professional needs and the needs of their students.
Practical part contains creating lessons-plan, getting and analyzing real information from your institutions and professional experience. There is a complete toolkit used to achieve innovative (and needed) results.
This course and the toolkit will offer you new ways to be intentional and collaborative when you are designing new solutions for your classroom, school and community. It hones your skills and empowers you to create desirable solutions applying the methods and mindsets of design thinking to your work.
We have layed out a series of steps that can help you develop new, innovative solutions designed with people at the center. This toolkit can help you create resources for everyday challenges.
You will be practicing the skills of design thinking through hands-on activities. This methodology will lead you to increase your confidence in your creative abilities. And, at the end, you are going to be able to develop a sense of empathy for your educational community and come up with ideas for planning courses and a groundbreaking environment that they want and need.
