What you'll learn in this design class:

Creativity and collaboration have become essential skills in businesses that seek to grow through innovation. Fortunately, these are not inborn traits — to organizations or individuals — but skills that can be taught. Together, they form the cornerstone of Design Thinking (a.k.a. Human-Centered Design).

This hands-on workshop will lead you through the design thinking process, taught by two professionals who live and breathe in this space. The class will explore how design thinking can be used to develop innovative solutions for the problems we face as businesspeople, non-profit leaders, entrepreneurs, and global citizens. Students will leave with a handful of practical, portable skills that they can apply to their next challenge.

Takeaways
  • Understand how to apply design thinking principles to tackle complex challenges
  • Gain exposure to research tools that can be used to uncover people’s latent needs, behaviors and desires
  • Learn techniques to improve problem framing, ideation and prototyping
School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
