NEW – Design Thinking Workshop

 

 


We are now offering one-day workshops on design thinking for students and teachers!


What is design thinking?

Design thinking is a core concept in innovation, and a game changer in how products and services are designed.

 

Student workshops

In the morning, we will introduce students to the principles of design thinking:

  • How has it has evolved?
  • Why is it important?
  • How is it changing the world?!

In the afternoon students will work in small groups of 4-5, to solve a practical problem (tailored to the subject you teach) using the methods they have just heard about.

We can host these workshops here on campus at University of Suffolk, or we can bring them to your school for the day.

The session requires a minimum of 15 students to work effectively, and is designed for students aged 11-18 who are studying STEM subjects.

If you would like to book a workshop for your students, or have any questions about this offering, then please get in touch with us at stemschools@uos.ac.uk.

 

Teacher workshops

Would you like new tools for tackling the challenges in your classroom and develop the problem-solving abilities of your students? Then our design thinking workshops are here to help you.

We will introduce you to design thinking, and discuss how it can be used to solve school-centred problems and inject more creativity into your classroom.

Teachers will also have the opportunity to discover how the methods associated with design thinking can be used to equip your students with the ability to tackle real-world problems in a novel and exciting way.

The workshop for teachers is an all-day event, and typically runs from 9:30am to 4pm with groups of 5-10 teachers.
