What is this?
Welcome to the d.school’s Virtual Crash Course!
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.
