About this Event

The Nueva Design Thinking Institute (DTI) is our annual summer institute dedicated to sharing design thinking practices and processes with other educators. DTI will run from ​Tuesday, ​June ​23​ to Friday, ​June ​26, ​2020. ​Each ​day ​will ​begin ​at ​8:30 ​a.m. ​and ​end ​around ​4:30 ​p.m. On Friday, we end at 3:30 p.m. to accommodate for participants’ travel plans.

We welcome all educators interested in incorporating design thinking, or aspects of design thinking, into their teaching practice as well as those who are already using design thinking and want to further deepen their practice. Participants will gain and deepen their understanding of how to create design thinking curricula that foster creative and innovative problem solving skills.

The ​registration ​fee ​​includes ​a ​curated ​binder ​of ​materials; ​daily ​meals ​(breakfast, ​lunch, ​and ​snacks); ​guest ​speakers, ​and ​a ​wine ​& cheese ​reception ​after ​the ​day's ​activities ​on ​Thursday, ​June ​25. ​Participants ​are ​responsible ​for ​arranging ​their ​own ​hotel ​accommodations ​and ​this ​is ​not ​included ​in ​the ​registration ​fee. ​While ​we ​do ​not ​provide ​shuttles ​or ​other ​forms ​of ​transportation ​to ​Nueva, ​our ​San ​Mateo ​campus ​is ​easily ​accessible ​by ​Caltrain ​and ​other ​public ​transportation ​systems; ​please ​refer ​to ​Google ​maps ​or ​the ​Caltrain ​website ​for ​details. ​Uber ​and ​Lyft ​are ​also ​widely ​available ​in ​our ​area. ​ ​ ​

Space ​is ​limited ​so ​please ​register ​all ​group ​members ​at ​the ​same ​time. ​If purchasing tickets for multiple ​participants, kindly note that you are able to add/edit their names once your purchase is complete. We ask that each attendee ​complete ​the ​registration form as it inquires about food allergies and accommodations, emergency contact, etc.

If ​you ​will ​be ​joining ​us ​from ​out ​of ​town, ​we ​recommend ​looking ​into ​the ​following ​hotels ​for ​your ​accommodations:

If ​you ​utilize ​sites ​such ​as ​expedia.com ​or ​hotwire.com, ​search ​for ​hotels ​in ​San ​Mateo, ​Foster ​City, ​or San ​Carlos.
