Engaging Students in Design Thinking

Instructional Resource

Artists can raise our awareness of issues from the past and present and help us imagine alternatives for the future. In this workshop, museum educators will use artworks as a springboard for engaging participants in the design thinking process: discovery, interpretation, ideation, experimentation, and evolution. Teachers will consider how to integrate design thinking into lessons that challenge students to identify and address problems that may challenge scientists, historians, and writers.
