Kwantlen Polytechnic University has partnered with IBM Canada for a course called Design Thinking and Innovation. According to a KPU release, design thinking is “a solution-based approach to solving problems” that “refers to the steps by which design concepts are developed.” The course features a case-study that enables students to apply the concepts they learn to a real-life scenario. “As part of an emerging collaboration in Building an Innovation-Enabled Workforce for Canada, we’ve been using insights from the KPU pilot projects in our parallel initiative with six academic institutions and six workplace partners in Ontario,” said Karel Vredenburg, Director of Global Academic Programs at IBM and head of IBM Studios Canada.
