Design Thinking Workshop for Teachers

Our teachers spent 3 hours today to engage in Professional Development in design thinking, as part of our efforts to promote a culture of innovation and empathy in the school. The teachers were split into 2 groups and had to pair up to tackle the design challenge: "redesign the morning experience of your partner". Teachers who have had experience with design thinking paired up with another colleague as their user while new staff had students as their users. Both groups went through each mode of the design thinking process to find and address the needs of their users. It was a fruitful experience as the teachers got to know more about their colleagues' morning routines and the problems they face during morning commutes
