It’s 2018 and we are back for the 4th period of Design Thinking course at Master of Management, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Indonesia.
Along with over 80 new students coming from various background we delivered the Design Thinking module and tools in February to March 2018. In this semester we added a new thing whereas we did several experiments using Behavioral Economics theory in the learning process.
The students were divided into 9 groups. We have selected 3 focus areas in social issue; Waste Management, Poverty Eradication, and Healthcare Provision, for their group work. One focus area was assigned to one group. By the end of the class, the students presented their prototypes using storytelling and role-play, and they’re not allowed to use any usual presentation slides. This gave them the different level of presentation and audition to sell their ideas/ prototypes to the stakeholder and panel of judges.
We’ve got very positive feedback from our post-course survey. 2 main advantages that they experienced from the course: shifting their mindsets and a new learning on collaboration. And 1 concern that they wish to improve: they wish they had more time to work on their assignments.
