We are currently developing a Design Thinking for STEM Educators workshop series for teachers and community leaders who would like to learn and use design thinking to create customized STEM education programs in their own schools and communities.
Design thinking is a nonlinear, user-centered approach to problem solving. While many of us are well-acquainted with the problems surrounding STEM education (lack of qualified teachers, inadequate learning facilities, limited access to technology, etc.) actually tackling those problems in ways that ultimately lead to student achievement looks different for every school and every community.
Through our Design Thinking for STEM Educators workshops, we hope to build a nurturing and collaborative environment where teachers and community leaders can analyze core issues in their schools, create customized solutions that improve student outcomes and also honors teachers’ perspectives and expertise.
