Design Thinking for Social & Political Science

Year of Study
12 October 2022
14:00 - 17:00



This session will focus on the Stanford University school design thinking process (empathise, define, ideate, prototype, and test) and introduce “empathic questioning” to assure that SPS students uncover the underlying issues associated with a given problem.

The secret to effective design thinking is the “front-end” problem-framing process, requiring an advanced questioning competency that fosters empathy and trust. This hands-on session will open your eyes to the power of design thinking and provide you with a new approach to solving complex problems.

Please note: This session will be delivered online via Collaborate. The link to join the event will be sent in a separate email.

Facilitated by Dr. David Steinberg
