This new four week course will expose students to design thinking and give them an opportunity to learn more about how it can be applied in schools. Students will be broken up into teams, and will collaborate with individual high schools that are facing design challenges around school-based decisions, such as tardiness policy, school discipline, or implementing project-based learning. Students will get a unique view into the decisions that school leaders and school communities face, develop a range of innovative ideas and prototypes, and test those ideas directly with the schools. The course will also explore the degree to which design thinking in schools leads to solutions and ideas that prioritize the student voice and increase overall student engagement.
