The Nature Conservancy published an article about a new Jan Plan course, Design Thinking and Product Innovation, in which the author, who was also the course instructor, recounts her experience with 18 Colby students in her class. “I wanted to create a journey for the students,” Nina Naylor wrote, “and show them that sometimes you need to pull things apart to see new patterns. Design thinking is all about challenging your mindset, pushing away assumptions and having empathy for whomever you’re working to help.”
