Design thinking?

A school tries to teach you design thinking. I would love to see how they go ahead with this.

“Design thinking is a different way of thinking,” said Alex Kazaks, a member of the course’s teaching team. “There are all different kinds of intelligences, and one of these is creative intelligence. Design thinking is an analog for that. This is not something usually taught in a university setting, and we’re trying to make it available to students.”

That sounds like they're following the concept of multiple intelligences that Howard Gardner talks about.
