How to Implement Design Thinking at Duke

Project Team

Open Design team.

When we hear the word “design,” we often think about a product: the features of a technology, the look of a space, the integrity of a structure. But design also refers to a process that can be used by teams to solve deeply complex, real-world problems. This project offered students the opportunity to help ideate and build design experiences at Duke. Students gained content knowledge about design thinking and human-centered design, planned a one-day design learning summit, built educational resources for use at Duke and beyond and helped design Duke’s new Open Design+ program.
