GS03 Design Thinking in Learning and Work
11:15 AM - 12:30 PM Thursday, March 28
How do you distill a problem into a creative solution? In the closing session of our conference, Sarah Prevette, who specializes in turning ideas into meaningful innovation, shares her ultimate credo and how it can change your approach to design and work. She'll look at creativity as a skill set and entrepreneurship as a philosophy. Innovation is something people can learn, as long as you embrace the mentality and deftness of the entrepreneur. Join us for a session that will give you tangible tips to take what you’ve learned at Learning Solutions and apply it in your work.
