What is this?

Overview

Hey there!

If you’re reading this then you want to learn more about design thinking—and we’re excited about that!

We’re also excited to let you know that we are currently designing a new crash course experience for people just like you.

Cool, so what does that mean? Good question! And two answers:

1.) We will be taking down the “Virtual Crash Course Video” and “How to Kick Off a Crash Course” resources on May 1st, 2019 :(
2.) We are looking for folks interested in helping us co-design, prototype and/or test our new crash course

So if you are interested in just using this current version—dive in now while the gettin’s good! Because May 1st is just around the corner.

And if you are interested in collaborating with us to bring a fresh version to life—share some information with us below and we’ll be in touch! (In the fortunate event that we get lots of interest, we might not be able to reach out to everyone.)

Welcome to the d.school’s Virtual Crash Course! *This resource will be taken down by May 1st, 2019*

We know not everyone can make a trip to the d.school to experience how we teach design thinking. So, we created this online version of one of our most frequently sought after learning tools. Using the video, handouts, and facilitation tips below, we will take you step by step through the process of hosting or participating in a 90 minute design challenge.

Through this experience we hope you will take away some of the basic principles of Design Thinking and start to adapt them into your personal and professional routines.
