Apply for Winter Classes & Pop-Outs by Dec 8!

In a d.school class you'll learn and practice specific tools, tactics, mindsets and behaviors that will help you develop core design abilities - abilities that you'll be able to apply not only in class, but to your work and life elsewhere at Stanford and long after you leave the Farm. 

You'll be learning these abilities by working on real projects. Our classes are all experiential in format and offered in different ways and styles, adapted to the topics of each specific class. We encourage students to explore subjects outside their field of study and beyond their comfort zone.

Check out our winter 2018 lineup  - just be sure to apply by Friday, December 8.

DETAILS

Who: This workshop is designed for working professionals, who are new to design thinking and speak english fluently.

Where: Stanford d.school, Peterson Laboratory Building, 550 Panama Mall, Stanford University

When: Tuesday, October 3, 2-5:45pm (Please allow at least 20 minutes to find a parking space and walk to the d.school; this hands-on learning experience will start on time! Closest paid parking is Roble Field Garage located at 320 Panama St, Stanford, CA 94305)

Apply for the Creativity in Research Scholars by May 19!

Overview

d.school Creativity in Research Scholars are a disciplinary diverse set of Stanford PhD students. In addition to their primary research activities, these individuals are learning and applying design thinking to push the boundaries of their work and create entirely new applications and approaches to their research.

This program is deeply participatory, rigorous, and meant for doctoral students that are eager to use creative practices and interdisciplinary collaboration to create impact. Scholars must have a high tolerance for ambiguity and excitement for the potential that exists in undefined and ever-evolving opportunity spaces.

Program Timing

This is a nine month program for the 2017-2018 academic year. Participants will take at least one class in the d.school in the fall quarter and spend winter and spring quarters focused on both group and individual activities. By the end of the program Scholars will be required to submit a new proposal, paper, or some other form factor of work together with at least one other Creativity in Research Scholar from a different discipline.

The minimum time commitment will be one d.school class in addition to informal meetings in the fall, and four hours per week in the winter and spring quarters – though we expect many students will be eager for more.

Want to apply?

Selection and Eligibility

Stanford PhD students from any field are eligible and encouraged. You must have begun the research phase of your study and be able to discuss your research throughout the program.

Selection is via application which requires an endorsement from your primary advisor. A group of 10-15 PhD students will be admitted with an effort made to make the group as diverse as possible from as many angles as possible.

Application Timeline

May 11th: Information session 6:30-7:30pm in d.school studio 1
May 19th: Deadline to apply

May 24th-25th: Interviews for semifinalists
