2018 Foundation Programme in Design Thinking

20 Nov 2017 - 09:00

The Hasso Plattner Institute of Design Thinking (d-school) has limited spaces for applications for the 2018 first semester Foundation Programme. The call is open to students who are registered for a post graduate degree in any discipline The programme will run for 12 weeks on two full days per week (on Mondays and Wednesdays) from 05 March – 01 June 2018.

The foundation programme is an introduction to design thinking that equips students to work in multidisciplinary teams with project partners around complex challenges. The training will encourage the development of a human-centered mindset in students, and the development of a team culture that is rooted in design thinking’s creative and innovative practices. The foundation programme requires that the teams engage stakeholders in the context of the challenge and develop design proposals that solve problems that emerge.

During the programme, students will be guided by a trained d-school coach. The teams will learn more about their challenge, its context and the importance of being able to understand and act on human needs.

This is a very popular course and places are limited so don't miss out on this opportunity to unlock your creative intelligence.
