OSLN Design Challenge series: Design Based Thinking 101
10.19.2021 | 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Introduction to Design Based Thinking and Design Challenge Registration series: Join Metro Staff to learn about running a design challenge in your school.
The session starts with ideas of design based thinking and takes teachers through a practical application of the stages of the #STEMbuildsOhio challenge. Examples and curriculum tools will leave participants with a firm grasp of how to execute any design challenge.
Design Based Thinking 101 is a 90 minute online session and part two of the Design Challenge Miniseries. The session is designed to both introduce new teachers to the ideas of design based thinking, while also providing an environment for teachers with more experience in this area to grow in their understanding and practical application of the stages. The session will provide both an overview scope and eventual goals of the Design Challenge, while also providing the sequence of steps in the Design Challenge and what this practically looks like in the classroom on a daily basis. This session is designed to provide teachers with the practical tools and background knowledge necessary in order to implement a Design Challenge within their school or classroom. The session will be full of examples and curriculum tools so that teachers can leave the session with a firm grasp of design based thinking and the potential that it has to impact the classroom.
