Developing a Design Thinking Evaluation System

PI: Professor Bernard Roth


In order to validate the efficacy of how design thinking is taught to graduate students and professionals, there must be a way to evaluate the impact this subject has on learners. The goal of this research is to investigate what kind of effect thinking has on the actions of students with different disciplinary expertise and to use that knowledge to generate an evaluation tool that design thinking instructors can use to both validate their effectiveness and to improve their courses.
