 Generation Study Abroad Design Thinking Challenge    
The 2016 IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad theme "Explore. Experiment. Exchange" urges us to think in new and creative ways on how we "do" study abroad and how to reach the ambitious goal of doubling study abroad by 2020.

IIE has partnered with The Design Gym to create an atmosphere of innovation and infuse design thinking through the 2016 IIE Summit. A special Generation Study Abroad Design Thinking Challenge will get participants into a creative mindset to voice new ideas, collaborate in shared spaces, and use our collective knowledge to ideate and innovate.
Additionally, The Design Gym will offer a special Design Thinking Crash course as part of the Pre-conference Workshop Series. This workshop is an incredibly fast-paced introduction to some of the tools of Design Thinking. Participants will explore topics of empathy building, idea development, rapid prototyping and storytelling and walk out with a comprehensive understanding of design thinking and some concrete tools to take back to work.

Sunday, October 23 from 1:30 to 4:00 pm
Registration: Space is limited and on a first come first serve basis.
