Light a fire for learning space innovation in this hands-on activity. Once a vision for learning is developed, walls and funding are not necessarily blockers for reinventing spaces. Past participants have implemented their ideas as this example shows.

In groups, participants are facilitated through the Stanford Design Thinking process, culminating in the crafting of real 3D prototype of a re-imagined learning space. The process can be applied to a hypothetical or real space. The final plan can either provoke the imagination, or proceed to implementation. The ideal duration is three hours to work through the design thinking process, however, it is possible to customise the experience to 90 minutes, or even a full day.

Participants emerge with a whole new perspective on the potential for physical space itself to be re-envisioned to better cater for learners.



SCIL offers a variety of levels for your Space Design Thinking experience. Please view the options below to identify the level most suited to your group. Please note, all prices include GST.
