The Stanford d.school: 3 Days in One Minute
Take a look inside the 3-day executive education program, an experience about putting the principles of design thinking to work in an active, participatory learning environment that engages and challenges.
We love collaborating with anyone who embodies a posture of learning, doing, and teaching others. One of the most motivated student audiences we host at the d.school are executives from industry, government, and non-profit organizations. These executives pressure test our methodologies against real world challenges with real world constraints. Having been acquainted with traditional executive education programs, we are amazed at watching executives’ bias towards action during our workshops. The video above was shot over the course of a 3-day workshop with 88 executives last July.

The Stanford d.school: Making Space
Watch an overview of the Stanford d.school’s Environments Collaborative, their approach to workspace design, and the process of moving the d.school to it’s new home.
For us, space is a useful, malleable tool for hosting a learning experience. We continue to be inspired by the ways that students and professors alike use the space to set the tone of events and suggest behaviors forexperiences they create. Our teaching space is the product of an evolutionary process: over the course of four moves in four years, d.school students have hacked and manipulated each space to suit their needs. We have learned from these explorations and continue to evolve our space with each new student experience.
