Train the Trainers Day 1: Developing Teachers' Capacity in Design Thinking

On 20 and 21 Nov, a group of 14 teachers attended a 2-day workshop on Design Thinking. The objective of the workshop is to build a core group of teachers who can lead in facilitating design thinking and help develop this area in the school. Ong & Ong, a design firm gave a workshop on design thinking and also shared their experiences in using Design Thinking in their work. The design challenge was to re-design the learning experiences of the students in order to meet the needs of the 21st century economy. Brainstorming was intense as the teachers were very open and generated many interesting ideas.

Many thanks to the trainers Joshua, Mark and Ken who really inspired the teachers!
