Workshop - Teaching Design Thinkers: The Responsibilities of Empowering the Next Generation
New technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence and augmented and virtual reality are changing our lives -- in positive, negative and often unanticipated ways -- at a pace far greater than previous technological revolutions.
Stanford’s “d.school” focuses on teaching “design-abilities” that help students (and all of us!) to be active participants in the challenges and opportunities ahead with the advancement of these new - and still to come - technologies.
In this interactive session, you will have an opportunity to learn some of the design skills and mindsets taught by Leticia Britos Cavagnaro and Humera Fasihuddin, educational innovators from the "d.school".
This workshop is sponsored by the Pavlis Honors College, the William G. Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Visiting Professor Lecturer/Scholar Series (VPLSS) which is funded by a grant to the Provost's Office from the State of Michigan's King-Chavez-Parks Initiative. Coffee and light refreshments will be provided to those who register by Tuesday, October 16, 2018.
