Design Thinking: Monday July 17 (9:00am - 3:00pm)

Human-centered design thinking is a methodology used by designers, engineers, teachers, students and entrepreneurs to solve complex problems. This approach starts with empathy to explore the needs of who is most affected by the problem and then designs a solution with empathy most in mind. Teaching and learning using human-centered design is a way to design curriculum and assessment in all subjects and grades and is being adopted as a way to teach 21st-century learning skills such as entrepreneurship, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

STEM Learning Lab is excited to offer an engaging, hands-on, interactive one-day workshop on design thinking this summer at UBC Okanagan. Participants will take on a collaborative design challenge and hear real-world applications of the design process from experts in business, art, or technology. After being introduced to the design process, participants will have the opportunity to plan and receive feedback on a unit created using the design process. Previous design thinking workshops have been held at TransCanada Pipeline, The City Of Calgary Public Library, Calgary’s Teachers’ Convention and various Calgary area schools.

No previous experience with electronics or coding necessary.

Optional Social: Join us for coffee and robot tinker time at 8:30 am before the session begins at 9:00!
