What is Design Thinking?




Macromedia MOOC Design Thinking
"What exactly is Design Thinking? The term Design Thinking seems to indicate that design has moved on from being mainly concerned about the surface of things and it seems to emphasize the thinking behind the design process. However, design has already used the Design Thinking approach for example by using human-centered design methods, in order create designs, which incorporate deep understanding of the needs, aspirations and hopes of users and customers. So why do currently so many people talk about Design Thinking? "

"At a time of unprecedented global challenges, the under-30 “millennial” generation has every reason to be disengaged. Yet plenty of millennials are engaged. Call it the empathy revolution. Extreme By Design, an hour-long documentary film, brings this revolution to life by following three Stanford University students as they design and build products to meet basic needs of the world’s poor."
