Threshold Design Institute teams will work together to apply human-centered design methods to the unique needs and opportunities found within their schools.

The design process will involve:

  • Empathy Building: ethnographic research, action research on campus

  • Interpretation: problem-finding / framing > Drivers & Constraints

  • Ideation: creative prototyping at multiple scales

  • Prototyping: building tangible responses to community needs

  • Evolution: strategic feedback and assessment

Going beyond the concept of a traditional cohort experience, we imagine Threshold Design Institute as a dynamic community of innovative educators and school leaders across Latin America seeking multi-disciplinary collaborators to push their professional and school boundaries.
