Supporting Event - One from Hundred Thousand Symposium Series Season 3: Co-creation Workshop for Secondary School Educators

Would you like to transform secondary education to cope with the unpredictable future?

PolyU Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation is looking for educators to explore the possibility of education. Participants will re-imagine new teaching models together with designers, and on how to infuse social innovation and design into learning different subjects. The aim is to help the students to reconnect and deepen the knowledge, and also enable students to better conceptualising their findings, generate innovative ideas and increase self-reflective learning ability, and so to enhance their learning motivation and autonomy.

At the workshop, we will

1. Introducing design thinking

2. Re-imagining secondary education through design thinking

3. Co-designing Teaching Tools
