about us

Here you can find some information on the seminar attendees: Who are we, where do we come from, what is our motivation?

Who are we?

Each year, a group of about 20 students gets together to work collaboratively on the topic of Design Thinking. We students engage in the basics of Design Thinking and learn about the possibilities of collaborative interaction in virtual workshops. 

The seminar consists of students from the University of West Georgia, the Georgia College & State University and the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. Thus, we got to know Design Thinking in an international context. 

On this page we would like to offer the opportunity to get to know us better.

The seminar of this year is under the influence of a global pandemic. Accordingly, this year’s seminar will take place exclusively online; unfortunately, it will not be possible for the American participants to visit Münster. Nevertheless, we would like to introduce ourselves briefly here below.
