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: conducting ethnographic and action research on campus or in the community
Interpretation: problem-finding / framing > developing design drivers & addressing design constraints
Ideation: create a range of potential ideas at multiple scales
Prototyping: building tangible responses to community needs
Testing and Evolution: interacting with strategic feedback and assessment of the design solution
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.
