Design thinking for education in online education
Apr 4 @ 03:00 PM – 03:50 PM

Compass Point Discussion Presenters: Hsiao-Cheng (Sandrine) Han (SL: Kristy Handrick), University of British Columbia; Yi Meng (SL: Emma de Pizan); Wenyi Gong (SL: Hermione524); Peisen Ding (SL: AAADeanAAA)
Description: Our team seeks to create a revision for education from the design perspective. We consider online/virtual education as being a design process. What if educators only lectured at a minimum, spending more time with students as they find problems, gather information, brainstorm ideas, plan solutions, test their hypotheses, and improve the design? Virtual worlds provide the best environment for students and instructors to engage in the design thinking process.
