Applications close January 19th – learn more & register for an information session below!
Are you a student or staff at U of T who is passionate about making a difference? Join our Design thinking Experience Program where we explore the student experience and learn about design thinking to make change. We are thrilled to be launching our Design Thinking Experience Program this Winter 2022 semester. Running weekly on Wednesdays 2:00-4:00PM from February 2 until April 6, this is a 10-week boot-camp style program that will provide you with:
- an introduction to innovation and Design Thinking
- experience conducting qualitative research
- teamwork skills and connections on campus
- an opportunity to generate ideas to improve the student experience at U of T
Working in small teams, students and staff will be focused on an important question or challenge for U of T students. By conducting qualitative research on your topic, you will then be equipped to use Design Thinking methodologies to analyze your data, generate insights, and ideate prototypical solutions to challenges you explored, all within the context of a supportive group environment. This is a great introductory program for students looking to learn more about Design Thinking, build their teamwork skills, or get involved with the work of the Innovation Hub on campus. Students who complete the program will also be eligible for recognition on their CCR.
