Design Thinking for Education
Monday, 4 November 2013 from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm (AEDT)
The need for creativity and innovation in education has never been more important. The design consultancy IDEO and Stanford University, in addition to other organizations, see potential in design thinking innovating in pedagogy and curriculum. A range of theories and practices are currently deployed at all levels of education to engage students in learning and help them develop the attitudes and skills that will most benefit their future in society.
Suported by the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT), and following our continued interest in this area, we've gathered four leading voices working at the intersection of creativity and education to each present a ten minute vignette on the significance of creativity and innovation for all sectors of education. The discussion is then followed by a public Q&A on the present and future of design thinking in education.
Professor Neil Anderson (Rural Education), JCU University
Professor Sarah Pink (Visual Anthropology), RMIT University
Professor Nita Cherry (Leadership), Swinburne University
Mr Tom Barrett, NoTosh.
We warmly invite you to a glimpse of the present and future of design thinking in education
