The Stanford Design Thinking Process is a methodology that uses a solution-based approach to solving problems.

In this session, we'll go through the six steps (empathise, define, ideate, prototype, test, share) to create a solution to our own problem.

You'll become familiar with the process and be able to recreate these learnings back in your classrooms.

This professional development session is supported by EQC and their new Building an Earthquake Ready Future resource, which uses Stanford Design Thinking to help create solutions to problems caused by earthquakes.
