Design Thinking Process: Leading Change
07, 14, 21, & 28 February 2023
Facilitated by: Jim Ellis
Educators are designers who are daily designing learning programmes, creating schedules, and making the lessons that shape a student’s experience. Furthermore, driving much of the change in international schools today are its middle leaders. Exploring the process and skills of Design Thinking will maximise middle leader impact and improve their efficiency.
During this course, participants will develop knowledge, tools and skills from Design Thinking that are geared specifically for middle leader success as they face difficult, sticky problems in their own context.
