Learn to think outside the box with workshops for industry.

Match Studio offers a range of one-off and multi-session workshops for business, government and community organisations. The workshops build awareness, skills and capacity for systems thinking, user-centred design, co-design and design thinking approaches. Participants then apply these learnings to stimulate innovation in their organisations and enhance the way they think and act to resolve challenges. The workshops provide a cost-effective engagement with the UniSA’s diverse knowledge resource.

If you would like to know about our upcoming workshops, or have Match Studio deliver a tailored workshop to your team, we would love to hear from you!

Workshop 1: Design Thinking in Business Innovation

Workshop purpose

Teachers will engage in two half-day hands-on workshops focused on design thinking and the business model canvas.

The workshop will be delivered to teachers seeking professional learning in design thinking competency and/or support for the delivery of design thinking methodology. The workshop will be tailored to the participating teachers to equip them with a broad range of tools to deliver and co-design problem-based learning projects, incorporate human-centred design concepts, and the various aspects of the business model canvas.

Workshop aim

The workshop will enable the participating teachers to enhance their knowledge through the practice and application of design thinking. The learning focus will be:

  • knowledge of strategic planning and the business model canvas
  • fundamentals of design and systems thinking as applied to innovation for a start-up business, existing business and social enterprise
  • preparation for and delivery of a successful pitch – regardless of leadership and confidence capabilities
  • applying design thinking in multi-party negotiations for current and new product/service development
  • acknowledging and addressing risk within project delivery
  • using a design thinking approach to find solutions to execute ideas and address challenges.

To date, teachers from more than 140 secondary schools in South Australia have attended this workshop. The workshop was designed to provide the participating teachers with exercises and challenges that could be delivered directly to their students. This has a two-fold impact: firstly, to provide teaching tools and resources, and secondly, to learn from a student’s perspective. From the teacher feedback, this proved effective, as expressed in the following survey analysis:

  • 100 per cent agree (67 per cent strongly agreed) there is an immediate application of learning.                         
  • 91 per cent agree (58 per cent strongly agreed) that their colleagues would gain value from the learning.
  • 91 per cent agree (58 per cent who agreed) that they would recommend the workshop.
