IO4: Design Thinking For Higher Education Students and Teachers (online website resource)

Design thinking is a creative problem-solving approach dealing with complex societal challenges in many fields. In the DT.Uni project, eight European universities have combined forces to enhance the problem-solving skills of staff, management and students at higher education institutions.

On this website: https://www.designuni.eu/ you can find the didactic materials for university students and teachers.

The didactic material is divided into 16 design thinking strategies that can be used in different combinations to implement design thinking in higher education.

For each strategy the goal (WHY) and its application and practice (HOW) is provided. These descriptions can be used as educational material for both students and facilitators/teachers given the complete instructions, such as requirements (time, materials), suggestions, and teaching tips.

An annoted list of relevant literature can be found under References.
