Recently I have found an interesting infographic about Design Thinking for Education would like to share with you, which is also the topic of my upcoming research report assignment:

Part 1: What is Design Thinking?


Part 2: The Design Thinking Process


 Part 3: Design Thinking in School

Focus2achieve - innovation create education



What interested me the most is as a design graduated for 10 years from a design institute,  I am wondering how our school has applied design think into their business model, and also how design think works in education business, and do they care if graduates able to apply what they have learnt from school into their professions or even daily life or not.



So my case study title will be:

The impact of applying Design Thinking across to Education: the case of Hong Kong Design Institute


  1. The overall purpose of the research:
    By study HKDI, which will allow me to find out the impact of applying Design Thinking across to High Education for their business development, also the impacts of their graduates to apply the learnings in their career and life.

  2. The specific aim of the research / area of design management to be researched, 20 words or less. (Pose this as a question, eg: ‘What are the main factors that motivate designers?’)
    - Trying to find out if Design Thinking is popular and important to high education.
    - What design thinking means to them?
    - How they apply it?

  3. What are the research questions? In other words, what do I need to find out, what areas do I need to research to answer the above question?

  4. Key sources for the secondary research / literature review (list at least fifteen books, journals, trade / professional organisations / web sources).
