The pandemic crisis forced unprecedented changes in the global education system, including learning methods, teaching models, evaluation mechanisms, and long-term planning for student growth. Design Thinking is a human-centered problem-solving method and has recently been widely used worldwide and in the Hong Kong education sector.

Therefore, InnoEdge Education, the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational and Continuing Education (VTC IVE), and Design For Change (DFC) Hong Kong co-organized a Design Thinking seminar to promote “Creative education in the post-pandemic era (後疫情時代的創意教育)”.  The webinar is free-of-charge and open to the public.

The audience of the webinar is the teachers, principals, and educators of primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong.  Several voluntary international and local education experts will share their cases about innovative teaching approaches developed by Design Thinking.

The rundown of the webinar was as below:
