Want to exercise your creative muscle or maybe pretend to be a grad student for a day at Stanford’s Institute of Design, better known as the prestigious d.school? If so, you’re in luck as the d.school is hosting a free, public crash course next Friday afternoon.
It’s a fabulous opportunity to learn about design thinking, not only in theory, but by trying it out. Participants are asked to arrive with an open mind for the student-led, experimental workshop. This is a great option for parents feeling stuck in an uncreative rut while watching their children’s imaginations run wild or who those who have zero design thinking experience and would like to try something new. Design thinking applies to all fields of work, not merely the traditionally creative. Wondering what it is? Go to the crash course.
The event runs from 3 – 6 p.m., and it’s expected to fill up quickly. Fill out the registration form if you are interested, and confirmations will be sent out beginning tomorrow. One of the questions on the form is, “If chosen to participate, I will not flake out on showing up.” Don’t flake.
