Free Design Thinking Coursera Course through UVA Darden

Halley Trinh – November 3rd, 2017

Are you interested in a career in nonprofit or in the social sector? Are you struggling to solve the problems and meet the needs of the people you serve? Come learn more about how design thinking, a human-centered approach to problem-solving, can help you truly understand an issue, generate ideas worth testing and iterate to find solutions that make a real difference.

Professor Jeanne Liedtka is launching a new massive open online course (MOOC), Design Thinking for the Greater Good: Innovation in the Social Sector, which features global success stories from organizations who are actively using design thinking in areas as diverse as government,  healthcare, and education.

 You will discover the tools, techniques, and mindset needed to use design thinking to uncover new and creative solutions in the social sector.

The development of this course was supported by the Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business. For more about the Batten Institute, see: http://www.darden.virginia.edu/batten-institute/
