Stanford University’s Institute of Design (d.school) offers a virtual course in design thinking. Using video, handouts, and facilitation tips, d.school takes participants step by step through the process of hosting or participating in a 90-minute design challenge in which they will be guided through a full design cycle. In this fast-paced project, participants pair up to interview each other, identify real needs, and develop a solution to redesign the experience for their partner. No previous design experience is required. Participants may choose to pair up with one other person or gather in a large group. Through this experience, they will take away some of the basic principles of design thinking and start to adapt them into their personal and professional routines. The virtual program is divided into three sections: Gear up! How to kick off a crash course; Go for a ride! Virtual crash course video; Chart a new course: Putting design thinking to work).
