Design Thinking Ghana Conference 2021 is a hybrid event that will explore the hybrid format for design Thinking
Design Thinking Ghana Conference has over the years impacted a wealth of knowledge and positively affected the problem-solving skills of its audience in the advent of new media and technology, emergency situations and times of adversity through mini-workshops, educational activities, design charrettes and networking activities.
This year’s conference will focus on Design Thinking and the new era of online engagement. The unexpected circumstances surrounding the COVID’19 disruption has suddenly and completely changed how we operate in all areas; prompting and forcing us to adopt alternatives to our daily activities. Online as a modality of daily engagement has been thrust upon all and can no longer be considered an emerging reality. Until now, online engagement has been managed as a separate entity across many institutions in the world. The current reality presents us with simultaneously engaging both online and offline as an integral part of our daily living. This means successfully engaging the strategies that are presented with this new era on a daily basis.
It therefore becomes necessary and important to turn the variables that impact our success with the new modality; whether we will fully or partially resort to it. The online modalities can present different formats, synchronous and asynchronous, as well as the combination of the two. As we transition online, we need to reorient ourselves and reassess our methods and plans to better meet our goals and objectives. This presents us with diverse problems that need to be addressed; hence the future of doing design thinking online and offline simultaneously. The questions therefore become; how do we successfully do Design Thinking both online and offline simultaneously, what are the variables to consider in engaging such an approach, what lessons can be learnt from what we have done and what others are doing, and what are the future projections of simultaneously doing Design Thinking online and offline?
Join us as we address these issues and equip ourselves with the knowledge and requisite information to develop the skills and expertise to live with the new modalities of our day-to-day activities under the theme: Exploring the hybrid format for design thinking (online and offline simultaneously)
