EDEx: Building a network of North Carolina’s educators skilled in applying design thinking
to develop creative solutions to complex problems in teaching and learning.
A new professional development cohort is forming for the 2018-2019 school year.
If you answer "yes" to the following questions, EDEx wants you to apply!
Applications accepted through June 30, 2018.
Are you a K-12 educator wanting to incorporate design thinking?
Are you looking to be part of a network of innovative teachers?
Are you seeking a professional growth opportunity that will inspire you to grow, connect, and engage with the community?
If these questions resonate with you, apply now for this year's EDEx Educators cohort.
Participation includes a year of ongoing professional development focused on design thinking and its application for teaching and learning. This year’s EDEx Educators cohort will kick-off with a three-day conference and workshop including attendance at Raleigh's Hopscotch Design Festival. The kick-off will be followed by a series of “Mentor Meetings” held at inspirational design locations in downtown Raleigh. Participants will hear from design thinking experts, practice using design thinking tools, collaborate in hands-on activities, and develop lesson ideas. As a capstone experience, each participant will develop a project that applies design thinking as a tool to improve teaching and learning in their school.
