Teachers and youth workers are constantly being asked to do more with less while being faced with countless complex challenges in and out of the classroom. How do you develop innovative, workable solutions to problems of practice? This Design Thinking PD will imbue educators with the problem-solving processes that designers use, which are especially helpful when working in a constraint-ridden environment. We will learn by doing, practicing design thinking in interactive, engaging activities where learning is participant-driven. At the end of this session, you will have an approach to create new solutions to an existing challenge of your choice. After the session, participants will receive three independent coaching sessions as they work to develop new solutions and build the design thinking process into their individual practices.
This learning module includes:
- 30-minute planning session
- 4-hour in-person, interactive workshop
- 3 1-hour follow-up coaching sessions
Audience: Teams of teachers or youth workers
