Design Thinking Retreat for Faculty

30 April 2021 (Fri) , 2 PM - 6 PM

Want to explore design thinking as a tool for teaching in a fun-filled afternoon? The CTL is hosting a Design Thinking retreat this month, in collaboration with the School of X in Singapore. The goal of the training is to provide a fun and practical learning experience and the opportunity to explore how to apply the methods and tools of Design Thinking to teaching. Specifically, the training emphasises:

  • Understanding the role of empathy in the design of new teaching activities
  • Ideating and prototyping new teaching concepts
  • The role of failure as a design input
  • Testing and iterating prototype concepts

By the end of the half-day programme, participants will have produced a tangible prototype, for example a classroom activity or assignment idea, ready for subsequent development, testing and iteration. The retreat will be held outside of Yale-NUS. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and space is limited. Please register your interest and commitment below. Registration closes on 16 April 2021.
