Dr. James Patell from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the d-School) will be speaking on campus on Thursday, September 18th at 6:30pm in the Student Union Building (SUB) in room 233.
His talk, "Building to Learn: How Design Thinking Can Help Bring Change," will highlight the lessons learned from creating and teaching design thinking courses for developing products and services that serve the needs of the world's poor. In particular, how Stanford students and on the ground entrepreneurs have developed low-cost and innovative ways to address issues ranging from crop irrigation in Myanmar and India, reducing infant mortality from low-birth weight, jaundice, asthma, and pneumonia, to income-generating and sustainable flooring solutions in Rwanda.
