Design Thinking for Stronger Schools – Detroit MI

This 2-day experience* is for school leaders and transformational educators who want to build skills, work collaboratively, and use Design Thinking to address challenges and enact change in their schools. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop skills and techniques to lead with empathy
  • Reframe wicked education problems to address their root causes
  • Build responses and prepare to implement proposed solutions back at home
  • Work on a tangible issue with other educators from around the country

(No previous Design Thinking experience required. This workshop is a fantastic complement to our 3-day workshop, Design Thinking for Deeper Student Learning.)
