What is this?

Overview

At the d.school we take learning to the next level. Here, educators from across disciplines experiment with ways of developing students’ creative confidence through design thinking. In all levels of education today we hear about active, project-based, experiential, and student-centric teaching strategies. How might we apply them in ways that really help students develop the skills and mindsets they need to thrive in a world of growing complexity and ambiguity?

Join the d.school Teaching and Learning Studio to actively explore these questions in the context of higher education. In this four and a half-day workshop, participants become immersed in design thinking and experiment with creating and facilitating transformative learning experiences.

Upcoming offerings: 

  • January 11-15, 2019 (at capacity)

  • June 10-14, 2019

  • July 15-19, 2019

Note: The workshop begins in at 3:00 pm on day one, and ends at 4:00 pm on day five.

We offer open enrollment for tenure-track, non-tenure track and adjunct/clinical faculty, as well as administrators who serve students and/or faculty. Faculty from both 4-year and 2-year institutions are welcome.
