Design thinking is a creative approach to problem-solving, through collaboration and iterative thinking around design. Users’ context and affordances of technology are integrated, taking into consideration systemic constraints to create meaningful, implementable and contextual solutions.


This five-day workshop aims to equip and train participants in the creative process of designing technology-based solutions for a pertinent educational problem. Participants will be encouraged to identify and work with a teaching-learning issue emerging from their context. Through hands-on design experiences, participants will create a prototype for their tools/materials, test it and move towards another iteration of the same.


Who can apply:

Teachers, teacher educators, curriculum designers and EdTech developers working in Indian educational contexts are encouraged to apply in groups. Each group must have a minimum of 2 and maximum of 3 members interested in working on a common problem.

Government organizations, university departments, non-governmental organizations and/or other educational institutions are encouraged to nominate interested candidates.

Multiple applications from an organization will be accepted.

Individual applications will not be accepted.

The workshop will limit participation to a total of 20 – 25  participants.
