What is Design Thinking?
Design thinking is an approach used for practical and creative problem-solving.

Design thinking is tremendously user-centric which focuses on human-centric research to understand people¡¯s needs and come up with effective solutions to meet those needs.

In education, it requires learners to empathise with user in context, define a problem, ideate solutions, and deliver the solution. It is a pedagogy approach of learning by doing which would enhance the learning experience of students.
