Design Thinking Mindset

10:00am to 12:00pm

Location: 

Center for Workplace Development, 124 Mt. Auburn St. Room 3314

Design thinking is a deeply human process that taps into abilities we all have but that may get over-looked by more conventional problem-solving practices. Design thinking requires an experimental, collaborative, and optimistic mindset. We define mindset as the ideas and attitudes with which a person approaches a situation. This workshop will familiarize you with the Design Thinking Mindset in action by immersing you in an in-class design thinking experiment.
