Limited Capacity seats available

According to the Harvard Teaching & Learning Lab, "Design Thinking is a mindset and approach to learning, collaboration, and problem solving. In practice, the design process is a structured framework for identifying challenges, gathering information, generating potential solutions, refining ideas, and testing solutions. Design Thinking can be flexibly implemented; serving equally well as a framework for a course design or a roadmap for an activity or group project." Participants in this session will  learn the components of equity/human-centered design thinking, engage in a design sprint, and leave with the tools ready encourage empathy through the use of design thinking in the classroom.
