Does IDEO teach design thinking?

We offer a variety of ways to explore design thinking through workshops and online learning. IDEO U is an online school that equips individuals with the tools and mindsets necessary to ignite creative confidence and tackle complex challenges. There’s also Experience Innovation, a workshop in innovation, giving teams meaningful experience with design thinking. Through a simulation game, teams compete to solve a realistic and complex challenge while engaging with the terms, techniques, and thought patterns of successful innovators. IDEO.org and +Acumen offer Human Centered Design 101, a free 9-week online course for social entrepreneurs and designers. Another free option is Design Kit, IDEO.org’s platform to learn human-centered design.
