Design Thinking

Design Thinking training is a human-centered approach to understanding and solving complex problems. It is a methodology that utilizes curiosity, empathy and creativity to design innovative solutions. It involves developing empathy for customers, discovering opportunities, generating user-centered solutions, and then building and testing prototypes of these solutions to learn more and improve the design.

Instructional design involves the process of identifying the performance, skills, knowledge, information and attitude gaps of a targeted audience and creating, selecting or suggesting learning experiences that close this gap, based on instructional theory and best practices from the field.

In this one-day workshop, you will gain a foundational understanding to the method and mindset that starts with an understanding of human needs and motivations to define, frame and solve problems. You will work under the guidance of design consultants from Foolproof, who will introduce techniques to conducting design research, identifying and framing opportunities, rapid ideation and prototyping.
