This learning event is right for you if you are interested in developing new ways to effectively and creatively engage students in their learning by creating innovative, manageable ideas.


Independent Schools Victoria (ISV) along with the global leaders in Design Thinking, NoTosh, have partnered to offer Design Thinking for Learning, to create an active community of schools that will become high-paced incubators of design thinking practice, establishing classrooms as innovation labs.

ISV is pleased to partner with NoTosh – a global consultancy with a passion for learning and a conviction that innovation and creativity can change the way people think, the way they learn and the way they work, as individuals, teams, organisations and communities.

This program, exclusively for ISV Member Schools, explores Design Thinking as a model of inquiry. Form a team of five (four teachers and one school leader) from your school and fully immerse yourselves in the program to develop new ways to effectively and creatively engage students in their learning by creating innovative, manageable ideas. This action research-based project gives teachers the opportunity to become adept at using Design Thinking as a means of inquiry in classrooms and throughout the school.

Based on the success of previous DT4L projects, ISV is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for Member Schools to participate in Design Thinking for Learning Project 4.0.

“Without NoTosh’s support through coaching and in-house sessions I doubt very much we would have seen such change in our school in such a small time frame.  We are continuing on with the journey, maintaining momentum and would like to thank ISV for the opportunity to participate in such a great change-maker process.”

“We’ve had a great first-up Design Thinking experience – staff and student reflections have been incredibly positive. Our primary goal was to revamp a poorly executed Year 7 project that was attempted last year. This time around, with a Sustainability theme, linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and underpinned by a Design Thinking process, it was a resounding success.

Both ISV and NoTosh have been pivotal in this, so thank you!”

Rick Geall – Christian College, Geelong
