On October 6, the new book "Design Thinking in der Bildung: Innovation kann man lernen (Design Thinking in Education: Innovation can be learned)" from the academic publisher Wiley-VCH will be available in German language. It is an appeal by scholars and practitioners to break new ground in education in order to prepare our society for the diverse challenges of the 21st century. An English volume will be published by Springer Nature and is due for release in early 2022.
Design thinking has long been established as a powerful approach to innovation that can help tackle complicated problems and steer change in all areas of life. The reports of many scholars in the new anthology, based on both theory and practice, show how great the potential of design thinking is in education as well. They present innovative educational approaches in a variety of fields, illuminate them from different angles, and open up new perspectives for the education system to readers.
With its own HPI School of Design Thinking, founded in 2007, the Hasso Plattner Institute is Europe's leading hub in the field of design thinking. The book "Design Thinking in Education: Innovation kann man lernen" is published by the academic publisher Wiley-VCH and will be available in stores starting October 6. The editors of the anthology are Professor Christoph Meinel, Director of the Hasso Plattner Institute, and Dr. Timm Krohn, CEO of the HPI Academy, which specializes in continuing education in the field of design thinking.
