    Design Thinking is a tool set that can be explored for solving almost any problem. In this session, we will share two examples of how Design Thinking can be used to tackle educational and professional learning topics.

    This session will allow participants to explore the power of Design Thinking and at the same time work on a relevant topic: comparing the content-first versus the learner-first approach. 

    Part 1: An interactive workshop exploring the benefits of shifting from a content first to a learner first approach 

    Part 2: Sharing a complete workshop on envisioning a new school of the future   

    What we'll cover: 

    • Short introduction into Design Thinking  
    • Hands on experience participating in a virtual Design Thinking Workshop
    • Walk through a complete workshop on envisioning a new school
    • Q&A on how to apply Design Thinking for education purposes 
    • Links to additional free readings and resources


    Sean is a UX Architect working for Microsoft since 2019 and has delivered 500+ Design Thinking workshops in is carrier. He is a conference speaker, Book author and is passionate about teaching the next generation of Design Thinking moderators.   

    Sean is convinced Design Thinking is a tool you can use to tackle any problem and it is something that should be taught in school to empower the next generation with a new approach for problem solving.

    Noelle Allen is a learning and development professional with more than 20 years experience. When she reentered the job market after 15 years, she learned (the hard way) that a lot of things had changed since the last time she looked for a job! Everyone wanted to see a portfolio! After a lot of trial and error, Noelle created a portfolio and is excited to share her process with other professionals who may be struggling.
