Stanford University K12 Lab 3-Day Workshop

Laura McBain - K12 Lab Director

Ariel Raz - Learning Experience Designer

Devon Young -Program Manager

The K12 Lab is pleased to offer Discover Design Thinking, an introduction to design thinking for teachers and school leaders. The purpose of the workshop is to help educators build creative confidence and equity awareness that can be applied upon return to their local contexts. This three-day intensive workshop offers participants the opportunity to: learn design thinking by tackling a real world problem, connect with like-minded educators from across a wide network, apply high-quality resources, and develop a plan for how to implement the process and mindsets of design thinking.

Workshop participants will hit the ground running with a real-world innovation challenge. Using design thinking as an innovative framework, attendees will experiment with new tools through two hands-on challenges. Between lively activities and exercises, facilitators will tie in moments of reflection for participants to collect, process, and share learning with teammates. By the workshop’s close, all attendees should expect to leave with an understanding of the key tenets of design thinking and spend a full day transferring what they learned to their classrooms, schools, and beyond.

The K12 Lab is a catalyst for creative confidence in the elementary and secondary education sectors. Through workshops, resources or tools, we teach using immersive real-world projects where creative problem-solving matters most. We aim to obliterate opportunity gaps in K-12 education by experimenting with new models and sharing design approaches with stakeholders in the K-12 sector. Our experiences bias towards action and by jumping into new, invigorating ways of learning, educators have stretched beyond their comfort zone to develop new skills and mindsets.
