Fellowship teaches new approach to challenges

The Personalized Learning Department is launching the new iDesign Central Fellowship for central staff leaders who are interested in learning how to tackle district challenges using design thinking.

iDesign Central Fellowship is a five-month experience so Dallas ISD central staff leaders can build habits for design to lead teams and transform culture. This opportunity takes a design thinking approach to spreading creative confidence by equipping fellows with tools, processes, and resources to intentionally and creatively tackle district challenges using design thinking. To learn more, go to www.thepltoolbox.com/idesign.This fellowship is open to 20 central staff leaders.

The fellowship asks for the following commitments from participants:

  • Five full-day workshops between January and May 2022.
  • One day (chosen at your discretion) to shadow a user to better understand how he/she experiences the systems you lead.
  • Dedicated time between workshops to put what you learn into practice and work on your design challenge (about 4-6 hours).
  • Participation in two showcase events hosted on Tuesday, March 8, and Thursday, May 26.

Interested in being one of the 20 iDesign fellows? Fill out and submit the application at www.thepltoolbox.com/idesign by 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28.
