Final online conference of the D.T. Uni project - 25.11.2020

The Final Online Conference of the D.T. Uni project took place on 25th November 2020. The participants of the event met with the Zoom platform to learn about the results developed during the projects. We consider the meeting very successful.

We would like to thank once again our Rector, prof. dr hab. Radosław Dobrowolski for joining the conference and for the opening speech. 

Throughout the project  we have explored and developed design-led thinking approaches which support innovation in higher education institutions by using a bottom-up approach, i.e. supporting students, researchers, academics and management staff in developing their ability to think and work in a more divergent, creative and design thinking way. 

The project has produced a range of Design Thinking online resources* as a result of the knowledge exchange and research undertaken within the partnership of eight universities across Europe. Each output addresses the use of Design Thinking from a different approach or user perspective. 

  • IO1 Best practices – reflective of current interdisciplinary working across European Higher Education

  • IO2 Applying Design Thinking. A Workbook For Academics And Researchers

  • IO3 Design Thinking Handbook For Managers In Higher Education

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

  • IO5 New Didactic Model

During the event the team have presented the summary overviews of each output which demonstrate how you can utilise these free resources and apply design thinking techniques into your day-to-day work within your own institution/area of work.

Huge thanks to our partners and speakers:
Ekonomická univerzita v Bratislave, Birmingham City University, TU Dresden, Sapienza Università di Roma, Háskólinn á Bifröst, University of Amsterdam / Universiteit van Amsterdam, Instituto Politécnico da Guarda.
Without you it wouldn't be possible to organize such an event!
To all participants: we hope that our resources will be helpful in implementing design thinking in your everyday life. Thank you for being with us!
