Approach

My teaching approach: Designing enables. Especially Design Thinking has democratized the activity of design, allowing anybody to work like a designer. However, coaches, facilitators, managers and team leaders are needed for establishing appropriated framework conditions to collaborate. A contemporary understanding of design expands the possibilities for students, and calls for designers as companions of innovation processes in different sectors. Students should not only learn how to design products but also systems and should gain coaching experience. So they are prepared to a leading role in innovation projects, which allows others to work together creatively.
