Creative Thinking tools reference guide for XJTLU UG design students and all interested

Research output: Other contribution


This reference guide is designed to support students' creative process. It is based on the principles of Design Thinking, synthesizing several of the most influential resources on Design Thinking and Service Design.
Additionally, it provides a short reference to presentation techniques.

This guide will suggest recommended steps for developing design projects, yet students should remember that creativity is a non-linear process. The guide splits the creative process into Thinking & Structuring and Narrating & Representing. They respond to the questions on how to organize the thinking process of the project and how to explain the project to peers, teachers, and other audiences. The idea behind creating this guide is to help students take a step from procrastinating to acting. This guide encourages them to start learning by trial and error with the support of internationally recognized methods in design-related professions.
