In our Design Thinking Bootcamp, you will explore and generate new ideas to creatively solve problems. You will tackle a real-world challenge that applies to UNMC, so you can easily interpret how Design Thinking can be applied in your area. Participants will use design thinking methods and tools, focusing on individual development and team collaboration.
This immersive educational program will feature lectures, case studies, demonstrations, project assessment, and reflection. In addition to redesigning the dental experience, you will also discover:
- How to have empathetic conversations
- How to generate real insights that reframe problems
- Tools that help teams modulate between exploring and generating ideas and evaluating and focusing
- How to prototype low resolution concepts, test in context to gain meaningful feedback and data, iterate and add resolution as appropriate
