Sample text

Finally, the design thinker may draw on education for evaluation methods. Those new to design thinking may experience it through multiple lenses of perception. What are some common ways in which design thinking is described? What does it mean for the average person? What are the commonalities among the different interpretations of design thinking? Some design thinkers focus on the study and understanding of people and the ways in which they use products and ser­vices. To better design a product, for example, the designers put themselves in the place of the people who use that product.

For example, a collaborative webquest assignment fit into information literacy initiatives I was developing, and online courses in the Philadelphia University program taught me the benefits of online learning. Thus I was prepared to teach in a blended environment, interacting with students both face-to-face and online. A year later I designed and taught a class, “Computerized Legal Research,” for paralegals. While in school, I worked as co-instructional designer on our final capstone project team.

To this we add the theory and practice of library science, our native discipline. We describe design thinking as a means of inquiry by which practitioners realize and give shape to their ideas about ser­vices and instructional products. It is mostly a process of thoughtful questioning and conceptually determining how library orga­nizations can create better library experiences for their user communities. Design thinking is characterized by examining whether a library ser­vice is needed by its user community before physically designing and implementing the ser­vice; design thinkers put user needs ahead of their own technological interests.
