Abstract

It is increasingly important for Science and Engineering educators and students to be aware that, solving complex problems require methodologies like Design Thinking. It is also important to bring this knowledge into industry settings as there is no evidence this exist for most industries in Nigeria. A workshop was conducted, following the Design Thinking approach, to help educators, students, and industrial partners to collaboratively generate ideas towards the development of a web- based virtual laboratory. In doing so, participants gain a hands-on experience of how this method is used to develop products and services. This paper reports on how the workshop was implemented, evaluated, the observations made, and lessons learned. The research was carried out with the hypothesis that the design thinking workshop improves the quality of understanding of design thinking of the participants. In the end, findings of the pretest and post-test scores of the participants shows significant (30%) increased knowledge gained by participants.
