Get inspired: Annie Kerguenne, Lead Integrated Design Thinking Programs at the HPI Academy, will introduce the strategic Design Thinking principles and inspire with practical application examples in a video lecture. Video time: approx. 15 minutes.
Do: The video lectures are followed by hands-on exercises that are designed to help you practice what you have learned. We will provide you with templates to try out your skills and capture your applied work. To accomplish the exercise, you should plan approx. 1,15h per Module. In case you need help, the Course Coaching Team answers your questions during their weekly Office Hour.
Share: For an active learning experience we highly recommend to make use of the learning community and share your outcomes, thoughts and ideas. You can do that by participating in the virtual live sessions, the discussions in the forum and uploading your results to OpenHPI for your peers to review.
Evaluate: It would be great if you join the community and take part in our final peer-to-peer assessment in order to give direct feedback and get it from your peers. Send in your exercise outcomes to be reviewed by three peers and do a round of reviewing yourself. Accordingly, we will provide you with guidelines and rubrics for the peer review. This is volutary!
Your HPI certificate, a confirmation of participation, is issued to those who have completed at least 75% of the course material.
This online course takes place over the course of eight weeks. We recommend planning a time investment of 90 minutes per Module. Three Modules open within one week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), so 4,5 hours per week should be calculated that you can divide flexibly fitting to your schedule. If you would like to make use of an active learning cohort, participate in the virtual live sessions and activities to discuss and get feedback.
However, if time restrictions don´t allow your participation during the actively running course, you have the option of doing things in an on-demand self-paced manner. We give you the flexibility to make use of the learning materials in a 30-day access after the starting date of the course.
