Gabrielle Santa-Donato

Lecturer & Fellow in Life Design
Stanford

Gabrielle currently teaches many applications of design thinking at Stanford and IDEO University -- and leads a movement to bring life design to universities across America. Her workview is to help people discover their unique learning potential. In service of this, she has created and delivered innovative learning experiences for the past 10 years at the intersection of design thinking and education, training professionals to use the design process in K12, higher ed, and corporations locally and internationally. She brings a depth of experience in education innovation to these communities -- from the the perspective of a psychology and education researcher on development, creativity, and intelligence; a teacher in inner city schools; an international start-up founder; and a universal learning designer for new systems that foster creativity and connection. Gabrielle received her BA from Dartmouth college and her M.Ed. from Harvard Graduate School of Education.
