Discover Design Thinking: A hands-on experience

Do you keep hearing the words "design thinking"? Are you unsure what they mean, much less how to apply them to your company, organization, or personal aspirations? Have you read the Wikipedia page but still don't quite get what all the fuss is about? 

You have to experience the process to really understand it! Design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving that can change the way you and your organization work through challenges. By gaining insight into what people really want and allowing it to guide creation, solutions are more engaging an useful to the end user. 

This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the basic principles of design thinking, drawing from the Stanford d.school, IDEO, and complementary methods for the social innovator. Through learning-by-doing, you will gain tools to enhance creativity and learn tips to implement them within your organization or personal endeavors. This three-hour workshop is ideal for participants with limited to no knowledge of designing thinking, who want to dive in headfirst.

$5 registration covers the cost of snacks and beverages.

Optional: Please bring an item to contribute to the prototype materials table - anything from craft supplies to coffee containers to clothing pins. Use your imagination! 

"Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success." - Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO
