Design Thinking Workshops
Design thinking is a process that facilitate the art of critical thinking into a creative end product. It was originally developed by Standford D.School and has since been in use in various fields. The BioTrick project decided to use this as part of their process to ignite creative thinking in the participant the triangular consisting of students, teachers and supervisors as well as the geographic triangular of Finland, Norway and Portugal.
The following elements were identified as challenges that need to be addressed within the BLS academy. Helping and supporting individual organizations to improve with digital learning tools but also to have generic solutions on a global scale.
We are hosting a Design thinking workshop in each one of the partner countries and then combining and further developing the initial results, we are having a fourth workshop including participants from the three countries.
The design challenges for the individual workshops were:
Improvement of sharing of knowledge between teachers, supervisors, students and practitioners on a digital platform that will promote active continuous learning on a global scale.
