Design Thinking

To reach their potential, the 21st Century workforce needs the ability to think and solve problems creatively - to innovate! Join GCC's third annual Creativity Conference featuring hands-on workshops on how to apply Design Thinking in the Community, Business, Education (Kindergarten through College) and Personal Enrichment. This professional development opportunity is designed for everyone!

Our goal is to broaden the conversation around the application of creativity and innovation. We hope you will consider helping us to deepen both the knowledge and skill base of our regional community in at least one of the following areas:

  • Education (kindergarten - College) track will share the best practices, tools and strategies implementing design thinking and/or creative thinking with impact.
  • Business track includes best practices, tools and strategies in implementing creativity within all organizations, both for-profit and non-profit.
  • Community track will highlight ways in which design thinking and/or creative thinking and problem solving  help communities to grow and prosper.

We invite proposals for 50 minute presentations/workshops that broadly or specifically support the conference theme of creativity/creative problem solving

Proposals must be submitted by Friday, March 25, 2016

All sections of this form are required – incomplete proposals will not be considered.
