According to experts, design thinking is an effective, creative and purposeful tool for process improvement or product design, such as training programs. Lecturers learned the basic concepts, benefits, and implementations of design thinking. In the era of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity), the application of principles of design thinking in higher education institutions will help to find solutions to difficult problems or create new forms and models of cooperation.
