MSA Design Process

MSA National Conference, April 2019

Baltimore, Maryland | Designer & Presenter


The Magnet Schools of America National Conference is held every year featuring a different magnet school district across the country.  Administrators, project managers, and educators attend to collaborate and network supporting innovative learning programs within public schools. 



During this conference, I presented several breakout sessions on integrating design thinking through design challenges.  The session included introductory information about design thinking and how it was used at an elementary school, hands-on challenges to apply the process, and time for reflection and networking in collaborative groups.


In a post session survey, 100% of attendees said they learned practical ways to implement design thinking process within learning and were leaving with tools to immediately integrate the process.  97% of attendees strongly agreed the presenter was engaging and knowledgeable about the topic.


Comments from the presentation survey included:

"Rebecca had such an energetic attitude and engaging presentation style.  She introduced topics and allowed for collaboration among those in the room to apply the process.   I feel so much more comfortable utilizing design thinking with the examples she shared." - Shari, Project Coordinator

"I loved the hands-on experience and how the activity led us through several parts of the design thinking process in a simple yet effective way." - Tony, STEM District Coordinator
