UWC-DT Summer Studio: Your Design and Innovation Toolkit to beat the odds

Are you confident you can stand out and excel in the complex and volatile world?
Your goals today and world-changing aspirations, are they really within reach?
You have excellent academic records, but you have not succeeded in creating a notable project under your belt, does that bother you?
You have incredible ideas, but you don’t know how to turn them into tangible outcomes, are you feeling frustrated with yourself?
If you relate to any of the above scenarios, then you need ‘Design Thinking’!

What is Design Thinking?

Design thinking is a methodology to solve problems creatively. As designers, we focus on the people that we are designing for in order to lead to human-centered products and services. The core of design thinking is getting actionable and knowing your questions. It’s about simple mindset shifts or ways of asking questions differently – a new way to look at problems.

Below is a portrayal of the Design Thinking Cycle:


From framing the right question, to coming up with creative ideas; moving from prototyping to sharing with others, all relevant project-management issues can be resolved by Design Thinking. At UWC-DT Summer Studio, the acquisition of this framework and related project management strategies will undoubtedly give you a clear advantage in the highly competitive school environment.
