Institute Overview

The Nueva Design Thinking Institute (DTI) is our annual summer institute dedicated to sharing design thinking practices and processes with other educators.

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.
