Our participants love us
I liked being part of a diverse group of creative thinkers joined by a common goal of design thinking for social impact. I hope that we, as part of this group, will keep the discussion going and continue building our relationships around looking at challenges creatively.
I especially appreciated experiencing a different approach to problem solving. I see this method as useful in tapping human potential both in students and staff through an initial establishment of trust within the group, then improvisation, and finally an outcome of something useful and unexpected. The process is fun! It was tactile and abstract. It was social - bonding people through establishing a team with a good purpose. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
