Kasia and I are very proud to present our book about Design Thinking. If you’re a teacher (not only an academic teacher) please DOWNOLAD IT for free, read it, enjoy it, use it 😊

We hope you’ll find it useful.

The handbook is divided into three main parts. Chapters:

  • Design Thinking and co-creation
  • Design Thinking in education practice
  • Design Thinking workshop scenarios (we have prepared for you two types of scenarios: a 90-minute Design Thinking jam (class) and a 30-hour Design Thinking Bioeconomy course (for both face-to-face and online environments).

Additionally, on the project website: https://bioeraplus.eu/ you can download supportive teaching materials, such as tool templates and presentations. Hopefully you will find them useful in your classes!

Good luck and have a wonderful co-creation and Design Thinking journey!


The BIOERA+ project has evolved from the need to develop, reinforce, and make teaching methodology in the field of bioeconomy more flexible. Bioeconomy remains crucial for sustainable development in Europe.

The Covid-19 pandemic confronted the academic community with the necessity to adapt rapidly to the demands of online work. For many lecturers and students, the lack of face-to-face contact resulted in less effective and engaging classes. However, this experience can also be treated as an opportunity to enhance teaching methodology and alter the approach to the methods of motivating, activating as well as evaluating students’ work.

The project can also be seen as a chance to implement new teaching methods that will inspire academic faculties and enable smooth transitions between learning in virtual reality and in real-life situations. You can find out more about the project here: https://bioeraplus.eu/
