d.school Class Proposal | Winter 2020

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 teach human centered design methods and abilities
- 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 megan@dschool.stanford.edu

Deadline for proposals is Fri, September 27 2019, 11:59pm.

Classes can be 50 minutes, 80 minutes or combined blocks of this time to make longer classes. See university allotted times here: https://stanford.app.box.com/meeting-patterns-grid
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.
Will you be applying for a Teaching + Learning grant? *
These grants are a way for our teaching community to explore specific themes in the context of their class. Equity, engagement and inclusion will continue as a key theme, and we encourage all teaching teams to pursue this theme in some way. For the 2019-2020 academic year, emerging technologies will be another area of focus at the d.school. If you would like to apply for a grant, please be sure to submit a grant proposal form in addition to your class proposal. Apply for a grant using this form: https://forms.gle/wSfLsQUQ4b9ucSe18
