ASNE-APME CONFERENCE ATTENDEES: UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY AT STANFORD’S d.school


Attendees at the ASNE-APME conference are being offered an exceptional opportunity by Stanford’s Institute for Design – or the d.school – which is a renowned hub for innovation at the university.


The d.school is offering a FREE workshop Friday, Oct. 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. – just before the start of the ASNE-APME conference – for a limited group of editors who register for the conference.


Here’s the description of the workshop:


1-4 p.m. Pre-conference event: Hands-on design thinking seminar

Using design thinking as a framework, workshop participants will tackle a hands-on innovation challenge. Participants will complete the workshop with an understanding of the key tenets of design thinking in the newsroom and a sense for ways they can incorporate this into their work.

Limited to 50 participants who have registered for the ASNE-APME Conference. Advance sign-up required.


Here’s more on the d.school:


The d.school is a hub for innovators at Stanford. Students and faculty in engineering, medicine, business, law, the humanities, sciences, and education find their way here to take on the world’s messy problems together. Human values are at the heart of our collaborative approach. We focus on creating spectacularly transformative learning experiences. Along the way, our students develop a process for producing creative solutions to even the most complex challenges they tackle. This is the core of what we do.


In a time when there is hunger for innovation everywhere, we think our primary responsibility is to help prepare a generation of students to rise with the challenges of our times. We define what it means to be a d.school student broadly, and we support “students” of design thinking who range from kindergarteners to senior executives. Our deliberate mash-up of industry, academia and the big world beyond campus is a key to our continuing evolution.


Interested? Please send your name to Sally Jacobsen at APME: sjacobsen@ap.org
