Segal Seminar Series: Dr. Susie Wise, Stanford University d.school K12 Lab
DR. SUSIE WISE is a restless optimist who sees creativity and design as fundamental human capacities. She is currently working at the intersection of design + belonging and writing a book called A Designer's Guide to Belonging. She founded the Stanford University d.school’s K12 Lab in 2007 to investigate the role design thinking could play in schools and in the education sector more broadly. Building programs like Discover Design Thinking, School Retool and the Shadow a Student Challenge, she helped spawn a national movement to bring design thinking into schools. Susie has been a fellow and faculty member with the National Equity Project where she collaborates on the Liberatory Design framework and she consults widely on using design thinking to develop cultures of innovation and build equitable learning environments. She has a PhD in Learning Sciences and Technology Design from Stanford University.
DESIGN FOR BELONGING is an approach to making the work of diversity, equity and inclusion relational and actionable. Drawing on frameworks from an array of thinkers and doers she offers a toolkit to get going on what matters in your communities.In her talk Susie will share how we can investigate some of the experiential moments that matter to reduce othering and build belonging. She will introduce an expanded set of design levers for action.
