Initiated by the HPI School of Design Thinking, the Global Design Thinking Alliance (GDTA) has published a toolset of tips and recommendations for virtual collaboration.
In the current Coronavirus crisis, educational institutions around the world are facing a lot of similar challenges. What kind of interactive learning formats can we offer in times of social distancing? Especially for Design Thinking schools on-site team collaboration has always been a key element in the learning process. At the moment, our habitual ways of collaborative team work and learning are not working anymore.
Therefore, we have to rethink our approaches and develop new concepts for virtual collaboration and to activate our collective intelligence. As Design Thinkers, we obviously love to take on a challenge and are already adapting to this unprecedented situation.
To share best practices and tools for virtual collaboration with a focus on Design Thinking team work,GDTA member institutions from five continents have created a Miro board.
The board gives you an overview of the digital tools and platforms GDTA members use to collaborate remotely with their staff as well as with their students. The flag icons show you which tools are used by the respective Design Thinking schools.
If you can recommend any other online tools or best practices for virtual collaboration in education, please send us a message to info(at)gdta.org.
