dmi:Webcast – Using Project Inflection Points to Teach Design Thinking

02 Sep 2020 / virtual/ online workshop, US

Design Thinking is commonly taught as an iterative, multi-stage process: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. But student feedback revealed weaknesses in this approach: Design Thinking is mistaken as simple, linear problem solving, it’s difficult to incorporate into real-world work, and teams struggled with common industry problems. Instead, Sarah Zuberec and Jenny Watts-Englert have found more success using project Inflection Points- a time of significant change in a situation to teach Design Thinking.
