About This Workshop

What do you want to be when you grow up? We might get older, but this question certainly doesn’t.

Put on a designer’s hat for an evening to work on one of the toughest challenges out there – planning your future. Design thinking is a great problem solving technique for hairy problems ‐ ones that we have no set solution for and where the course of action could change mid‐process. It turns out starting a company, systems like education and healthcare, and, for this evening’s sake, your life, are complex and hairy problems.

This hands-on workshop will teach you some of the critical tools and mindsets of the design thinking process and how to apply them to personal and career wayfinding. Join us to prototype the next phase of your life.

Takeaways

  • Scaffold, visualize and test multiple versions of the next 5-10 years of your life
  • Immerse in collaborative activities to explore your personal orientation in work and life
  • Orient as to when using which design thinking tools and mindsets work best to solve different problems

Prereqs & Preparation

None.

About the Instructor

Lecturer and Fellow in the Life Design Lab,

Previously, she worked in many facets of education, from teaching in a low income charter school, researching risk, resilience and creativity in child development, assessing impact in education non­-profits, and, more recently, building new communities of diverse professionals using design thinking in New York and Chile with The Design Gym and here in the bay area with the K12 Lab at The Stanford d.school.
