About this event

Join us for an Introduction to Design Thinking. This two-halfday training event, led by the Further Degree design team, will provide you with the mindset, framework and the set of tools you need to put humans and their context at the heart of your innovation efforts.

This is a very hands-on class and you will learn by doing using a digital white boarding tool called MIRO. Throughout the day you will work with a team, utilizing a four-part framework to discover, analyze, create and develop a contextualized human-focused product or service.
