Design Thinking University: A Design Thinking Event

Design U Hero

Design Thinking University is a full day, immersive experience living the Design Thinking mindset.

This introduction to Design Thinking provides a crash course on the design thinking mindset, from the fundamentals of human-centered design to design thinking mindset in practice. Beyond just the step-by-step methodology, take this opportunity to live human-centered design with the opportunity to address real case challenges and conduct primary research through interaction with Austin’s lively downtown scene.

At the conclusion of Design Thinking University, you’ll feel confident in your ability to teach and lead design thinking principles throughout your organization. Walk away with an actionable toolkit to improve design methodologies both at the project and functional levels.

This session is ideal for those who are new to design thinking methods, need a deeper understanding of the design thinking process or who require a refresher on how to effectively facilitate the design thinking process.
