Design thinking is highly creative and is well-suited to addressing complex problems through challenging existing assumptions and creating innovative solutions.
Design Thinking scholars use this approach to further the theory and practice of their discipline. In the context of the CRC at Mount Royal University (MRU), a Design Thinking scholar will be a faculty member assigned to the appropriate department within the Faculty of Business and Communication Studies. However, the successful candidate will become a catalyst for cross-disciplinary scholarship.
