Webinar recording : “Design Thinking: The Role of Library Staff in Participatory Design”

The webinar “Design Thinking: The Role of Library Staff in Participatory Design” was held on July 6th, 2017.

How can libraries adopt “design thinking” to improve their library services, programming and spaces?  What do libraries need to do to prepare staff for the change? According to Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO, “Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”

Webinar recording

This webinar explores design thinking principles, showcases how design thinking can be used to improve what libraries do and how libraries address user needs, and identifies strategies that libraries can use to adopt design thinking into their own work.
