• Overview
  • Programme

Design Thinking is a methodology used to solve complex problems and to find innovative and desirable solutions. It is a methodology that is known for its framework and process (Understand, Define, Ideate, Prototype). 

As people learn best through active doing and making, Design Thinking is a learner centered approach so instead of focusing on frameworks and processes, the process encourages participants to create, make and do in order to cultivate human centered behaviours and mindsets. 

Join us for this mini workshop jointly organised by IBF and Hyper Island to learn more about Design Thinking and how it helps you to develop human centric ideas and solutions. 

Participants get exposed to the concept of designing for needs instead of placing products first
Participants get an experience of the three lenses of design thinking habits - how to treat problems, ideas and solutions with a human centered lens.
