Iteration in Action!

Welcome the first InGlobal Learning Design newsletter! You are receiving this because you had been receiving information from the Institute for Innovation in Education (iiE). As mentioned in the last iiE newsletter, the iiE is now fully under the umbrella of InGlobal Learning Design. (If you’ve been following the iiE on social media, you’ll notice that all of the iiE accounts have been re-named as InGlobal, too.)

Design Mindset CARDS


We’re excited to announce an updated version of our popular Design Mindset CARDS, with a new look and clearer, more detailed prompts and explanations. Based on design thinking principles and a wealth of experience doing and teaching design in K-12, higher ed, and the private sector, the cards provide guidance, suggestions, and routines that support thinking at different points across the design process, including:
  • Observing, listening, and perspective-taking
  • Problem framing
  • Generating multiple solutions
  • Getting useful feedback on prototypes
  • Iterating productively
The cards are appropriate for individuals or groups working on any kind of open-ended problem, from engineering challenges to improving organizational culture. The cards use language that is straightforward enough for secondary students, but they have been crafted to help even experienced designers to uncover the problem behind the problem and find creative sparks when needed.

Updated Design Mindset CARDS available for pre-order!

Our new Design Mindset CARDS will be available in late August, and you can pre-order now at the special price of $19.95 per set (regular price: $24.95), plus shipping. InGlobal Design Mindset CARDS were originally designed as an Institute for Innovation in Education initiative in collaboration with Wholemindesign.

Design Stories

This month we’re kicking off a new series of short narratives by designers of all types that illustrate their thinking process and approach to design. Our first design story, “Look at Everything a Lot,” comes from the architect Aleksis Lahti via his friend Gary Murphy.

Aleksis had a house on Cook's Island in the Florida Keys, and about every five years, a hurricane flood swell would come in and wipe out all the docks. Rebuilding those docks was a huge pain in the neck. You could drill right down into the coral and sink the posts, you could build a large crib and put rocks on them -- it doesn't matter, when the next flood swell comes in, they're gone. And one day Aleksis said, "I'm really tired of this. There's got to be a way around it."
