Yesterday, Skidmore welcomed approximately 60 students from area colleges including, SUNY Albany, SUNY Poly, RPI, Siena and Skidmore for a workshop on Visual & Design Thinking.  Students were taken through visual thinking exercises using the new exhibit in the Tang Teaching Museum & Gallery, Infinity Atlas. The exercise teaches students techniques for deep listening and customer interviews.  Students then participated in a Stanford School exercise in Design Thinking, in which students used craft materials to create the perfect gift for a stranger.  Students learned the importance of tangible embodiments and prototyping.  Pictures below.IMG_0151 IMG_0198 IMG_0192 IMG_0193 IMG_0174 IMG_0177
