HFLI Featured at GVSU Design Thinking Event

Deborah ParizekHFLI Executive Director Deborah Parizek will share her expertise with Grand Valley State University faculty, students and the West Michigan community in a talk titled, “Developing an Orientation of Innovation Through Design Thinking,” on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 from 6-7 p.m. The event will take place in Loosemore Auditorium located in the DeVos Center on the Pew Grand Rapids Campus, and will be followed by a Q&A session.

In an article in the GVSU Lanthorn, GVSU Design Thinking Initiative leader John Berry speaks of Deborah’s experience in bringing Design Thinking into education curriculums.

“It’s a messy process (which) means going down a path of trial and error methodology,” Berry said. “Design thinking process is at its best when people are comfortable hearing from others and not trying to sell an idea, but really being open to the ideas of others and collectively finding a way to resolve the issue.”
