Design 2 Innovate



As educators, we all want to prepare our students to thrive in a complex future where rapid advances in technology and environmental challenges are changing the way we live and work. We want to make sure our students are creative problem solvers with well-developed 21st century skills. We want to amplify their voice and choice in their own education so they can become the effective lifelong learners the future demands.


Design thinking has already transformed global industries. It can also help effect professional practice change in your classrooms and school environments to meet these vital goals. Design2Innovate: introduction to design thinking will support middle leaders and classroom teachers to become more confident in using design thinking in the classroom, school curriculum, and leadership practice.


The course will allow teachers to:

  • Gain knowledge and understanding of design thinking, it's phases and operation, and its application in the classroom.

  • Learn how to use design thinking to enhance student-led learning, build 21st-century skills, and facilitate cultural change in your school.

  • Understand the design-thinking process, practices and mindsets impact student agency,  collaboration and critical thinking

  • Develop your creativity to tackle real-world issues using problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

  • Apply design thinking by producing a project, lesson or a unit of work for your students
