Design Thinking Bootcamp

Experience the design thinking protocol in a workshop environment led by Stanford d.school trained facilitators. Participants will use the design thinking protocol to create a prototype to implement to shift learning in their classroom.

Design Thinking is human centered problem solving. The needs of the user are the focus in problem solving to implement solutions. The core of design thinking is a bias towards action and creation. The process is iterative, in that creation and testing provides the opportunity for the creator to improve on previous prototypes and ideas to develop and implement a solution that address the end user needs.

“The design thinking process consists of these 5 steps:
EMPATHIZE: Work to fully understand the experience of the user for whom you are designing. Do this through observation, interaction, and immersing yourself in their experiences.
DEFINE: Process and synthesize the findings from your empathy work in order to form a user point of view that you will address with your design.
IDEATE: Explore a wide variety of possible solutions through generating a large quantity of diverse possible solutions, allowing you to step beyond the obvious and explore a range of ideas.
PROTOTYPE: Transform your ideas into a physical form so that you can experience and interact with them and, in the process, learn and develop more empathy.
TEST: Try out high-resolution products and use observations and feedback to refine prototypes, learn more about the user, and refine your original point of view.”
