Recording: Design Thinking Has a Pedagogy Problem, Mar 5, 2018

Julie Schell offers an emerging idea that design thinking has a wicked pedagogy problem and that Miller's advice is a harbinger of where ever-popular design thinking initiatives are headed if education change agents don’t acknowledge the drawbacks of current design thinking instruction.
