The Design for Change Course, in 3 Simple Steps
First, dive into articles and videos and other reference materials as you enhance your understanding of design thinking for social change and the Design for Change framework. Each module sets you up to apply that learning directly in your classroom.
Next, you will apply what you have experienced by teaching directly in your classroom. You will have step-by-step guides to support you as you introduce the Design for Change activities with your students.
After you implement the activities, you will reflect on the process and consider ways you might extend or modify the activities for your unique teaching context.
