 Design Thinking is a new and creative approach to solving problems and developing human-centric solutions. In education, it has a great potential to be used as pedagogy and methodology of creating learning experiences. When it is used as a part of the curriculum it enables educators to nurture mindset and attitude in students with child-centered teaching through character and skills development facilitating self-learning.

This Half-day workshop on Design Thinking for Educators will take you through the process to create innovative teaching-learning materials (teaching aids) for your subjects keeping student's context in mind. It will throw light on developing activities for hands-on experiential teaching with the Design Thinking process using 'constructivism' as a learning theory. Lastly, it will also talk about how Design Thinking can bring change in an individual student when used as a part of the curriculum.

Who should attend:
School Teachers, Principals, Curriculum Developers, Educational Content/ Activities Developers, Life-skills, Value Educators, Social-Emotional Learning Educators, School Counsellors.
