We are based in the U.S. with design thinking students across the world. Here is a story from Patricia about her experience with one of the design thinking online workshops in this collection.
My first interaction with the design thinking process was at a leadership training opportunity for young East and Central African leaders where we were asked to develop a solution for a hospital that was offering affordable healthcare for children with heart conditions. My team members and I followed the design thinking steps that allowed us to come up with a solution that we eventually pitched to the hospital management staff.
Recently, the questions that the team captains on my projects often consulted on helped me identify a skill gap. They needed further training on solution mapping. As I browsed the internet in search of design thinking courses, I came across The Design Thinking Online Workshop at Innovation Learning. Through these courses, I was able to supplement my design thinking knowledge and acquire new skills that helped me teach the project team captains to identify challenges and map out the right solutions. The course was a great fit for me and the team.
Key lessons or activities
The Innovation 101: Design Thinking Course took me 1-2 hrs to complete. In the first model, Darin shared his own story about how he got started on Design Thinking which motivated and inspired me to own my innovation journey.
Key things you learned and how or why you learned it
Learning about the “Innovation Step-by-Step” process gave me the skills I needed to develop anything from new products, programs, services, or organization enhancements. I learnt how to gain clarity on the challenge, formulate great questions, generate ideas, synthesize the ideas to finally communicate about the concepts I have developed.
What you did to put into practice (or made or tried)
I was able to share these tips with the team captains on my projects to enable them to identify solutions and manage responsibilities.
Outcomes or effect or impact on you, others, or your group
The team leaders have been able to solve challenges they encounter daily instead of escalating them. This has assisted with bandwidth and sharpened their leadership skills. So far, 5 mentees have been promoted to the core project team.
Tips for online design thinking course learning success
Are you enrolled or considering a design thinking online course and wondering how to make the best out of it? Online learning is an effective and efficient way to harness your self-management skills as you pace yourself towards a start and completion date.
However, online learning requires the same concentration and attention as a traditional classroom. We are going to be sharing some tips that you can use to ensure that you gain the most out of any design thinking online courses.
Choose a structured course
Design learning skills are best acquired when applied. You need to choose a course that comes as close as possible to a live session. The Innovation Learning Design Thinking course is a great fit because it starts off with a classroom training sharing session with exercises that need your application.
Start with less
As is common with design thinking, you will need different objects to utilize during the course assignments. Objects around the house can provide you with the inspiration you need to start off. Traditional design thinking materials of paper, markers, sticky notes, note cards, etc. will be sufficient in addition to creatively using almost anything like a cardboard box, cup, house plant or painting.
Keep a Record
A pen and paper definitely remember better than you do. Ideas come running fast and quickly and you need to record them to be able to apply them later. If you are more comfortable using your digital pen and device, this works too.
Have an accountability partner
You can have the completion of this course as one of your KPI goals at work or invite your colleagues to take on this course along with you. Team dynamics have been proven to be motivating.
Appreciate the process
It’s important to set goals, however, remember to appreciate and celebrate the process. When disruptions or emergencies occur during your course, you can refocus and create a new completion plan. Remember the bigger picture is to eventually acquire the sharpen your design thinking skills.
