Our first event: a design thinking workshop
Last night, just under forty students from across the 5Cs participated in one of the first events put on as part of the creativity and innovation initiative. We hosted the event as a prototype that would help us learn more about the kinds of activities that students and faculty wanted to see at the 5Cs.
The workshop was called Redesigning the Future, an Introduction to Design Thinking. The participants paired up and used the process of design thinking to reimagine how their partner could make an impact in the world.
At the end of the workshop, we asked students what (if anything) from the workshop they’d like to see more of at the 5Cs. Here’s a few of the things they had to say:
“I loved that I was able to work with students from across the 5Cs.”
“I would love to see us use more empathy, to really get to understand the motivations behind someone’s idea, artwork or endeavors.”
“I would want to see more of a chance just to come up with crazy ideas.”
We were thrilled to have such engaged, thoughtful participation. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next. Thanks to all of the students and faculty who participated. We’ll be hosting another similar event on February 20th.
