IO3: Handbook for managers in higher education

Design Thinking: a pracical guide. A handbook for managers in higher education

This practical guide describes a number of workshops held across Europe to train fellow workers in design thinking techniques and processes, as well as cases of applying design thinking in daily managers practice. It covers how teams have organised their sessions encompassing the structure, tools chosen, length, workshop delivery and evaluation. Through reflection on this process we have developed top tips and recommendations for designing, delivering and facilitating sessions. It is very much a practical guide, highlighting the elements that might be helpful for others delivering similar workshops or implementing the methods in everyday working. The workbook complements other DT.Uni outputs such as a set of best practice case studies, handbook of tools and database of teaching activities.
