  • Pathways to Innovation in Professional Development : From Informal to Intentional

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Most associations rely on informal processes to guide innovation with their education programs. Too often professional development staff and volunteer leaders “design at the white board.” Without a validated understanding of the challenges their members face, leaders fall into the trap of costly program development that they ultimately discover does deliver an adequate return on their investment.

    Most associations rely on informal processes to guide innovation with their education programs.  Too often professional development staff and volunteer leaders “design at the white board.” Without a validated understanding of the challenges their members face, leaders fall into the trap of costly program development that they ultimately discover does deliver an adequate return on their investment. 

    Design thinking is a human-centered and systematic approach to innovation that provides you with tools for discovering unmet needs of your members. By focusing on empathy and iteration, the design thinking process helps you create solutions that are grounded in the experience of your stakeholders and informed by their feedback through a co-creation process. Involving your members throughout the process, you ensure that you focus in on solving important problems for your members. You also protect your organization from investing in programs that flop. See how this works through a case study of an association that applied this method to their program development.

    In the webinar you will:

    • Learn what design thinking is.
    • Discover how to use this approach in designing innovative, cutting edge professional development programs.
    • Review methods for co-creation that work for association programs and services.
