Unlock an old problem from a fresh angle. Approach a daunting one by thinking without fear. Revisit a run-of-the-mill solution and improve on it. Design Thinking is an approach to tackling problems by developing inventive, human-centered solutions. It embraces creative problem-solving, collaboration, experimentation, and failure as important elements of innovative solutions — and it can be applied across all types of teams and institutions. This discussion will lead participants through the theories and practices of the design thinking process, including exercises that can be implemented in a range of settings. Following that, participants will break into smaller discussion groups and apply these tactics to relevant issues faced by institutions today. With support from the discussion leaders, participants will have a chance to see elements of the Design Thinking process in practice. Reconvening, each group will report its creative thinking around their topics and reflect on the process.

Learning Objective
Participants will understand the benefits of Design Thinking and how to implement a Design Thinking exercise at their institution.
