On 25th June 2019, a Design Thinking Workshop for staff was co-hosted by the Centre for Teaching and Learning and the Students Affairs Office. In the Workshop, we had Dr. Thera Chiu (Associate Professor, Vice-Dean of Student Affairs) and Dr. Matt Wang (Assistant Professor, Director of College of Interdisciplinary Studies) from Taipei Medical University as facilitators to introduce Design Thinking processes and share their experience in implementing it in various places.
Together with Dr. Felix Tang of our University, also as a facilitator of the workshop, nearly 20 participants joined the exciting series of activities which included ice breaking games, design challenge activities, learning about “Design Thinking” steps, applying them to create innovative teaching designs, sharing and reflection sessions.
Participants actively took part in the ice-breaking games which brings out reflecting on what are the most effective factors in motivating students in a class
