Learn from Industry Leaders
For over a decade, we have pioneered the teaching of Design Thinking to students. We are experts at creating hands-on, project-based, design thinking curricula. Come learn from experienced educators how to implement a similar program at your school.
This institute will enable you and your teams to efficiently create projects that will foster your students' Design Thinking skills, preparing them for the future.
The Design Thinking Institute is an annual event dedicated to sharing Design Thinking practices and processes with other educators. Educators learn to investigate underlying mindsets with the intention of creating projects and facilitating collaborative community efforts for the benefit of an individual or cause.
Participants will gain a better understanding of how to create Design Thinking curricula and foster creative and innovative problem solving skills. Instructors will lead a handful of workshops on how to effectively design projects, analyze thought processes, and communicate the important underlying mindsets that surround Design Thinking.
Leaders facilitate participants' initial work in creating curricula applicable to their environments and needs and create a collaborative community to share best practices going forward. Click here to learn about last year's Design Thinking Institute.
Nueva partnered with IDEO and Stanford's d.School to develop the first Design Thinking program and Innovation Lab (I-Lab) specifically for PreK–12 education. In response to a worldwide quest for teachers to integrate Design Thinking in school curricula, Nueva has continued to develop techniques, programs, and facilities for primary and secondary education.
"Design Thinking is a collection of techniques and mindsets that enable people to identify underlying needs through empathy, to harness and develop their ability to generate ideas, and to actively seek feedback."
"By flaring and focusing, people discover a path through complex, difficult problems, which transforms them into fearless and effective changemakers."
The Design Thinking Institute is attended by teachers, curriculum developers, STEM and STEAM educators, heads of school, service learning coordinators, and summer program directors and counselors.
Registration cost is $1,500 per person and includes a curated binder of materials, daily meals (breakfast, lunch, and snacks), guest speakers, and a happy hour.
