    Design Thinking for Clinical Trials

    in Science

    Design Thinking is a human centered approach to innovation that helps uncover the sweet spot of opportunity where the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success all converge. The application of the Design Thinking methodology (originating out of Stanford’s d.School) as a new approach to looking at solutions can lead to disruptive innovation in clinical trials for drug development. It allows for designing new ways of working, including the needs, challenges and insights about the complex world we work in.  


    In this discussion, we introduce the basic principals of Design Thinking and an understanding of how the methodology teaches empathy for the end user (the patients). We explore its ability to reframe questions and unleash innovative thinking as well as the "downside" of creative tension. Most importantly, we address how Design Thinking can drive more successful trials.  


    Hosted by Valerie Bowling, Executive Director of the Conference Forum, guests include:


    Kate Helber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Jen Reichuber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Komathi Stem
    Strategic Innovation Leader, Genentech/Roche


    Kate, Jen and Komathi will also be leading a hands-on program, May 11-12 in Boston. For more information, click here.

    EDU671: My Mock Action Research Proposal Presentation

    in Education

    Action research is inquiry or reseaarch in the context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the data to improve their own practice. Action research can be done by individuals or by teams of colleagues.


    An action research proposal is the first part of the action research paper.  The main difference is that you put the methodology section into the future tense and include a detailed research timeline.


    I'd like to give special thanks to Instructor Anthony Valley.  Instructor Valley, having you as an instructor has been a real blessing.
