The goal of this workshop was to give incoming students an opportunity to experience design thinking in an intensive and hand-on manner. Two professors, Federico Lozano from Norway and Jae Ho Park from South Korean, offered an excellent introduction to design thinking. 18 people participated including 3 professors.

In this intensive workshop, the experienced workshop facilitators Professor Federico Lozano and Professor Jae Ho Park guided participants through the design thinking practices. After an engaging icebreak, Professor Lozano began the workshop with his own story of how he learned and come to practice design thinking initially at Stanford d.school. The workshop was organized around several interesting exercises to experience design thinking. For instance, participants were asked to draw the face of a partner with whom they made a team and learned the bias that we unknowingly introduce. Participants also learned several real-world examples of design thinking such as design of a PET scanner for children.
