What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Design Thinking is a creative problem solving method and mindset. It’s human-centered, iterative, and collaborative. By using empathetic research techniques, creative brainstorming skills, and rapid prototyping techniques, Design Thinking leads to more interesting and effective ideas. It’s also pretty fun!

In this Bootcamp, you will learn:
  • A common language for using the five-phase Design Thinking process
  • Tools that you can apply immediately in your work
  • The team dynamics needed for group collaboration
The Design Gym believes in interactive practice-based learning over theory. Getting your hands dirty is the fastest way to develop creative muscles! We’ve created a learning environment where you can practice your new skills on a project challenge while being coached by practitioners from the fields of design and innovation.

Please Note:
  • Lunch, beverages and snacks are included.
  • Digital copies of all workshop materials will be provided.

Refund Policy
If you’re looking for a refund or class credit for a public workshop, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it’s draconian, but since we aren’t charging an arm and a leg and have to reserve space and purchase materials in advance, it’s hard to deal with last-minute changes.

We also can’t transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can’t give you a refund less than a week out, even if there’s a wait list for the class.

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Do they give out certificates after the activity?
Answer from Katie D.
Hi there—thanks for reaching out! We don't offer an "official" certification after our workshops. However, we can provide a certificate of completion afterwards if you need one for proof of attendance and participation. Hope this helps!
