Design Thinking for Edtech Services

Wednesday, March 28 | 11:15AM–12:00PM ET | Ballroom D/E
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
In this session, we will apply design thinking to the kinds of edtech problems you face every day on your campus. "We're supposed to help everyone 'flip' the classroom, but how?" "What are we going to do about our LMS?" You will get an introduction to a few design thinking techniques by working on the kinds of instructional technology and design issues you face at your home institution and by working with fellow participants. You'll leave with a sense of what design thinking is, why it works, and the value it might bring to your campus.

Outcomes: Explore 3 cognitive obstacles to creative problem-solving and a workaround for each * Choose 1 of 3 visualization strategies for representing information visually to make problem-solving easier * Employ 1 of 3 "ideation" strategies to identify possible creative solutions to strategic edtech problems in higher ed
