Scotiabank Investing $1 Million In Ocad’s Design Thinking Research Studio
Scotiabank is dedicating $1 million to developing a Design Thinking Research Studio at OCAD, which will allow the university to create a Design Thinking educational curriculum model and generate research, workshops, executive education, and an annual open public forum.
“This collaboration is a tremendous opportunity for our students to engage in experiential learning to prepare for careers in this connected world,” said Dr. Sara Diamond, president and vice chancellor of OCAD University. “Design Thinking is about empathizing with, listening to and observing people to identify and solve problems and improve their experiences. We are excited to exchange ideas with Scotiabank and learn from each other.”
