What is this?
“Be a Design Thinking facilitator!”
Join a community of learners, do-ers and teachers. Journey through a Design Thinking experience, apply it in the real world, and go forth and teach others the methodology.
Coordinate a group of participants and meeting space. There must be a minimum of 2 people, but no maximum for the number or participants.
Present Opening Remarks on WHAT Design Thinking is to you, and why this is an important exercise for the group. There are NO wrong answers here.
Facilitate and document the Crash Course debrief.
Help your team move from learning design thinking to doing design thinking by visiting “Chart your own course” — It may help you to review the various mixtapes ahead of time so that you have a hunch as to what direction your team might want to take.
Set up the room and materials.
Space should be configured to allow for participants to pair up near one another easily.
Have enough prototyping materials available (candy is always a nice add).
Please print the d.gift handout and modes/mindsets for each participant. You can find them in the sidebar above.

Instead of talking about design thinking, kick-off by diving in and experiencing it with the first activity.
