Delivered by Dr. Gene Bawden, Deputy Head, Department of Design, Monash University, this masterclass covers the essentials in design-thinking with practical examples of how this can be applied in the classroom and taught to students. It will cover:

  • Discovery process, that embraces an understanding of empathy and people-centredness,
  • Prototyping process, where ideas are generated collaboratively, and
  • Demonstration and testing process where ideas are put to work.

As well as teaching into the Monash Design degrees, Dr. Bawden is responsible for the writing and delivery of the Design Thinking units in the new Monash MBA, and the Global Executive MBA.
