As part of a larger design thinking project, the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program co-created two models of instructor engagement with instructors across its HPOG 1.0 grantees: The World Café and Designing with Stakeholders.  A number of HPOG programs volunteered to pilot these methods in their program to (1) improve collaboration between instructors and HPOG staff, and (2) engage instructors in devising innovative strategies to improve student persistence.  The publication “Using the World Café to Improve Instructor Engagement: A Guide for Health Profession Opportunity Grants Programs” describes the World Café pilot projects and the experiences of the grantees who participated.


Not familiar with design thinking?  At its heart, design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving.  It consists of a set of tools that focus on empathy for the end-user in the creation and consideration of any solution.

The HPOG program serves participants who are diverse in age, gender, native language, cultural background, and geographic location.
