The d.school about town: School culture hack-a-thon, Innovation at work, The Sum & more
The coming weeks will be busy for us not only here at the d.school, but away from it. A few members of our community will be around town and hosting some fun events this coming week, and we wanted to let you know where to find us!
Alissa Murphy, d.school teaching fellow, will be discussing Social Impact Design on Nov. 5 at Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco. The event begins at 5pm. Tickets are $16.82. You can RSVP via Eventbrite. The event is sponsored by Autodesk Foundation, Native Trails and Public Journal.
The d.school’s Scott Doorley, Scott Whithoft and I will be at The Bold Italic’s conference The Sum on Nov. 6 at the SFJazz Center on Nov. 6. The conference runs from Nov. 6-7, and tickets are available via Eventbrite.
Our d.leadership team leaders Perry Klebahn and Jeremy Utley will be holding a free Webinar on Nov. 3 through the Stanford Center for Professional Development. They will be offering instruction on finding analogous inspiration, or “how to get great ideas from the most unlikely places”. The webinar starts at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET and is part of a new Stanford Program, Innovation at Work.
On Nov. 15, the d.school’s K-12 Lab Network will be hosting a Hack Your School Culture Hack-a-Thon. You can apply here for the workshop, which will feature new tools the K12 Lab Network has developed with IDEO and Hewlett Foundation as part of the School Retool project.
