This presentation presents the materials covered by the author in her paper "Design Thinking + Self Awareness," in which she explores the processes and tools used in acts of design. In her view, the essence of design thinking us to empower individuals to affect change from within, moving design away from a colonialist activity to a native one. In this presentation, she draws on the experiences and outcomes of her students in ART 111, taught at Portland State University.
