About this Unit
The aim of this cross-disciplinary unit is to encourage students to explore their creative potential and broaden their perspectives of innovation through the lens of design thinking. Design thinking offers a range of strategic and practical approaches to both creativity and innovation including an understanding of stages of thinking and reflection; an evaluation of the dynamics of team work; the workings of conversation and dialogue to generate new thinking about complex problems. Students will learn about design thinking methodologies, and apply these towards addressing broader social issues in innovative and creative ways.
