Design Thinking Training for Classroom Instruction COT
Think outside the box. This is a very common expression we hear from teachers when they ask us questions during class. But how do we really do it? How can we truly find the solution “outside the box”? Design Thinking for Classroom Instruction has the answer.
Last October 29, November 5&6, 2020, the Center for Innovative Teaching and learning (CiTL) held a 3-day training on Design Thinking for Classroom Instruction to the faculty of the College of Technology. The webinar aimed at not only using design thinking for social innovation but also to teach Design Thinking as a course. Moreover, the webinar included workshops on empathy, persona, and others. The participants were overjoyed at their new learning as they crafted various innovations and presented to the group.
Design Thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand a user, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding.
