What is this?


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-day workshop, participants become immersed in design thinking and experiment with creating and facilitating transformative learning experiences.

Upcoming offerings: June and July 2018

We offer open enrollment for university-level educators.
