Goals of the Course
Educators are designers, designing the program, schedule, and lessons that shape a student’s experience. Driving much of the change in international schools are middle leaders. Offering the process and skills from Design Thinking will maximize the impact and improve efficiency.
During this course, participants will develop knowledge and skills from Design Thinking that are geared specifically for middle leaders. They will strengthen as a change agent and build on their ability to leverage the strengths of the design process to do so.
Participants leave the course with tools and skills to facilitate change on their campus and a process for dealing with sticky problems.
