Design thinking in action


About the research

'Design thinking', 'co-creation', 'entrepreneurship', ... Do you also roll your eyes when you hear those hip buzzwords? But what if Tom Demuynck (Artevelde University of Applied Sciences) told you that these concepts might well be the key to better education. Tom tells you how he and his colleagues achieve great results by supporting students in their practice with design thinking and co-creation.

Tom Demuynck

As a teacher educator in arts education, Tom Demuynck believes in co-creative learning and design. He is one of the initiators of Vrijplaats, an open research center that connects students from different programs with socially relevant clients. In consultation with these partners, students use design thinking to dig for the problems behind the problems.
