Build creative confidence and sharpen individual design thinking skills. Train your intuition and expand the design context from which you operate every day. This experiential studio introduces an identifiable set of skills essential to developing a strong personal practice of design thinking. The fast-paced hands-on exercises will lay the mental and physical foundation for a potent bias toward action, and a deeper knowledge of the personal skills that expert design thinkers utilize in all phases of their process. This year, the students will collaborate with the teaching team in developing a 21st century creativity assessment.
