d.school Class Proposal | Fall 2017

With each course, the d.school strives to offer students a spectacular, transformative learning experience. To make this possible, we ask the following:

- Courses must be team-taught by people from different disciplines
- Courses must be team-based and project-based and projects must use design thinking
- Courses must admit students from multiple departments and involve interdisciplinary collaboration within student teams

If you would like to send any additional materials (curriculum, mindmaps, etc.) that this form does not cover, please email them to mark@dschool.stanford.edu

Deadline for proposals is Friday May 26, 11:59pm.

Please note if you plan on engaging class partners and how that relationship will be structured.
Are you applying for an Equity and Engagement Grant?
The theme for fall qtr will be Equity and Engagement. If you could use extra resources as a way to incorporate this theme into your course, we are offering grants to support the development and execution of your class. You might choose to use this money for things such as transporting students to a project partner that would be otherwise inaccessible, or to run a prototype at a level of resolution that would be unheard of without extra money, or to incorporate artifacts, people, or learning experiences into your courses that will help you in pursuit of the Equity and Engagement theme, or… you tell us. Apply for a grant using this form: https://goo.gl/forms/rwexR7l7Cy8u5V6l2
Please note the users your students will engage and how those interactions will be structured.
Please identify the potential risks and benefits for specific user groups your students will be interacting with
10 weeks is standard for a full-quarter class.
If you do not yet have an approved couse number, please identify the department that will be hosting the course.
Please look at this link to calculate the units: https://studentaffairs.stanford.edu/registrar/faculty/unit-of-credit
We will provide a small budget of around $500 for additional expenses. Stanford will not reimburse travel expenses of teaching teams or honorariums for guests to your class.
