DESIGN THINKING & STEM
Innovation is the result of a creative process. IDC approaches creativity and its’ integration as a personal skill: practice makes perfect. The question is "how to solve a problem that becomes only clear after you have found the solution"
Since the origin of IDC has adopted Design Thinking as a strategy within each (research) project. It combines applied creativity with efficacy through an open and customisable methodology, developed at IDC. It is greatly savored by both industry and education.
This optimised approach on design thinking has been translated to an easy-to-learn method and toolset for designers & non-designers, teachers & students in lower and higher education.
Keywords: applied creativity, innovation, STEM, iterative problem solving, project based teamwork, project communication and documentation.
