This event is divided into two parts in order to cover all aspects of the design thinking process without overwhelming you with information.
1) Design Thinking Workshop Part 1: The Discovery & Research Phase (1h30min)
by Noelle Ghanem, Product Design Lead
>> This will include: Problem Framing, Tips & tricks when running research, Gathering findings, Research synthesis techniques, Preparing for Ideation
2) Design Thinking Workshop Part 2: The Ideation & Prototyping Phase (1h30min)
by Carine Teyrouz, Senior UX Designer

The methods, techniques and tips you will learn during these workshops can be applied for any problem solving scenario you're facing.
We're hoping to give you the right tools and insights to tackle two active OpenIDEO Challenges:
• The Education (Re)Open (Submission deadline: April 23)
How might we strengthen school communities, as sites reopen, by highlighting solutions that reconnect people and enhance collective wellbeing, teaching, and learning?
• The Food Systems Game Changers Lab (Submission deadline: May 14)
How might we build a better food future for everyone, everywhere?
