Using design thinking in other contexts, for example to improve family relations



Learning outcomes:

Participants will learn how to use Stanford Design School’s Design Thinking framework, to look at the world with a fresh pair of eyes, and design and make meaningful products and services.



About the Speaker:

Alvin Ananthan is the founder and main trainer for Goldfish Studios, a corporate training consultancy, and has been teaching design thinking for more than 10 years. Initially trained in the design thinking methodology at NIE/NTU, Alvin has since trained several hundreds of participants to use design thinking to add value to their own lives.


For 2018, Alvin crafted the design thinking program used by Nanyang Poly for their Poly Foundation Program students, and also designed and conducted a 2-day Design Thinking Camp for Ngee Ann Poly’s engineering department, to design a drone flying competition for students.


An experienced educator armed with a Masters in Education from NTU/NIE, Alvin believes that the best way to learn is to try it out; his workshops are very hands-on, usually with 80% of the workshop being activities for participants.
