Design as an Immersive Vanderbilt Experience, otherwise known as DIVE, is a new way for the whole Vanderbilt community to integrate human-centered design thinking to solve complex, real-world problems, develop critical thinking skills, and work in multidisciplinary teams during an immersive, mentored project.
DIVE is part of Vanderbilt's new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), an important element of the institution's accreditation that is designed to improve student learning.
• Students will learn design thinking through coursework and co-curricular programs, and address real-world problems in the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities.
• Faculty will further disseminate design thinking concepts by adding projects to existing courses and teaching multidisciplinary classes.
• Staff can integrate design thinking by participating in Boot Camps and mentoring students’ projects.
The multidisciplinary nature of DIVE aligns closely with the Strategic Plan, which seeks to leverage synergies between discovery, learning and service across our entire community of scholars and learners.
