How do you get your creative juices flowing? Experiences with dThinking

28 Jan

This month our Carnival host is Donica Mensing – Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Reno’s journalism school.

Cutting to the chase:

Have you applied design thinking in your work? Has it been useful? Why or why not?

Or, Plan B: How do you spark innovation in your own thinking, your newsroom or classroom? What techniques do you recommend?  

Blog your responses to either question and post a link in the comment section at Donica’s blog post (and/or below), tweet it (hashtag #jcarn) by Feb. 24 and she will post a wrap up by Feb. 28.

Donica did us all a great service with one of the best breakdowns of Design Thinking I’ve seen. So if you want some inspiration or help understanding this month’s question – check out her full post.

REMEMBER: Feb. 24th

Question(s): Have you applied design thinking in your work? Has it been useful? Why or why not? Or, Plan B: How do you spark innovation in your own thinking, your newsroom or classroom? What techniques do you recommend?  

 Lastly: Got topics for a future JCarn? LET US KNOW!

From our Carnival host Shaminder

 I’m truly blown away, I never expected so many people to just open themselves like this. Taken as a collection, we’re not all that different and we all worry and care about the same things. Are we making the right choices, are we happy, what is life about. Big big questions and look at all of us, we range in ages, upbringings, locations, backgrounds and yet we all worry about the same thing. I guess that’s human nature.

His full breakdown is here.

Stay tuned for our next party-time, excellent carnival….. coming soon.
