Event Details

Students in all grade levels at HFA schools participate in several design challenges each year to build design thinking capacity. In addition, HFA staff do their best to integrate the use of design thinking processes and the development of design thinking mindsets and dispositions into their every day lessons.

 

As an HFA teacher, you will be expected to facilitate design thinking challenges and to find ways to incorporate use of the processes, mindsets, and dispositions into your daily lessons.

Therefore, all HFA teachers are required to participate in a 2-3 day training prior to the start of the school year, to prepare you to fulfill these responsibilities. In this training you will experience the process as a design thinker and gain beginning facilitation skills. You will also learn how to access resources to assist you once the school year begins.

 

This year’s training will occur on August 14-15 (8:30-4:00 each day). All sessions will be held at Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies (485 Milwaukee, Detroit). It is strongly encouraged you attend the August 14-15 workshop, as this is run specifically for HFA employees and is an excellent way to meet other district staff. However, if you do have a conflict, you may attend our non-HFA Detroit Introduction to Design Thinking workshop in July.
