Design Thinking at School, Curiosity at Work
January 19, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education” (Einstein). Curiosity is celebrated in young children, but often squelched by the school system and job world. Now youthful curiosity, in the mature form of empathetic, critical thinking, is increasingly demanded of employees to help their organizations break the status quo and drive innovation. How to prepare students to develop curiosity into valued workforce capabilities? Introduce Design Thinking in the classroom. But at what age? Can it be a college major? The experts speak. Linnea Garrett, ChiTech: “Think left and think right, think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try” (Dr. Seuss). Kerry Ann Williams, Compete 360: “There’s a way to do it better…find it” (Thomas A. Edison). Andrea Anderson, SAP: “The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do” (Sarah Ban Breathnach). Join us for Design Thinking at School, Curiosity at Work.
