Develop your creative potential. Discover opportunities before solutions. Empathize. Imagine. Experiment. Test. Fail. Create. Disrupt.
The first 4 weeks of the d.Learning will be about you, the creative environment, social dynamics and knowledge development. Moreover, you will become familiar with the Dutch Design Thinking mindset, principles and the methodology by doing – from action you will learn the most.
Next, you will start a 12-week real-life project for a corporation. Since every team is working on a different project at the same time, you will have the chance to inspire and learn from each other.
In intensive collaboration with experienced coaches and experts, you and your team will radically be inspired by creative thinking and real-life experiences. There will be sufficient time for prototyping, testing, failing early and coming up with better solutions. During this project, various masterclasses will introduce the different techniques and tools in the process steps. Ultimately, you will be able to advance your own design practice.
A maximum of 25 participants are accepted to the d.Learning track. You don't need any knowledge about design thinking to apply to this d.Learning track.
