Connect for Success

Educators are striving to increase student achievement, enhance the learning experience for all students, and continually improve their practice. The 2015 Connect for Success Conference will integrate design thinking into all of its learning strands, empowering attendees to examine current issues in education and gain a new perspective of them through the process of design thinking.

What is Design Thinking?

Design thinking is when we intentionally broaden our perspective to examine all of the facets of a complex problem, simultaneously engage our intuition and cognition, and work collaboratively to spark viable, feasible, and desirable solutions. Everyone can be a design thinker!
