Workshop
Tuesday, November 14
Noon-1:30 pm (Arrive earlier to eat)

In their efforts to introduce Design Thinking into education, ZIP Idea Lab has developed a program that prepares teachers and administrators to begin building a common language and understanding of the process. This workshop, led by the Director of ZIP Idea Lab, introduces a proven process to actively engage participants in the doing of Design Thinking. Within the first 90 minutes, every educator creates a prototype solving for the problem statement, “How might we introduce Design Thinking into our classroom?” Idea Lab is also available to work with faculty post-workshop to further design how Design Thinking can be applied to projects and assignments throughout the syllabus.

This workshop is part of the Teach The Teachers™ Program, a unique program developed by Idea Lab that uses workshop, discussion and mentoring techniques to help increase understanding and adoption rates of Design Thinking by all educators within an institution.
