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

Julie Schell

UT Austin

Are you an educator striving to fight inequality? Meg Miller of FastCo recommends you go ahead and “forget design thinking.” This advice may come as a surprise, since design thinking is a hot education buzzword. 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.
