Introducing Susie Wise, K12 Lab Network director

The d.school is thrilled to announce that Susie Wise will be rejoining us to lead the next chapter of our efforts in K12 education.

Susie has been a creative force in the d.school since its earliest days. From helping to design & teach one of the earliest classes in advanced Empathy methods, to spearheading our partnership with the Nueva School to help launch their innovation lab, to pioneering early ideas about publishing teaching resources, Susie’s impact has spanned a wide range.

Since she was last at the d.school in 2008-2010, Susie completed her Ph.D. in Learning Sciences and Technology Design, co-founded a school in Oakland called Urban Montessori, and worked as a design strategist and innovation coach at Intuit.

Susie started leading the K12 Lab Network in late October 2012, and is planning a series of new activities and experiments. We’ll keep you posted here about upcoming events and opportunities to engage.
