Abstract
The Effect of Design Competence on Science Education Jongrae Park Associate Prof, DGIST, KOREA j-park@dgist.ac.kr Recently, Design thinking method has been getting attention in many fields. It is used in developing new businesses, products and services, as well as methods of learning. Design thinking method is a way of finding a powerful solution through a process that people who have diverse expertise share or suggest their ideas, define, ideate, make some prototype and then evaluate within a short time. Science and Engineering ideas and research results are also made into products and services through the design process. Moreover continuous design management can create new needs and values. Therefore, comprehension and application of “design thinking” can be a necessary competence in Science Education. At DGIST, we aim to understand the basic knowledge about design thinking and cultivate their abilities such as Observation and Empathy ability, Creative thinking ability, Expression and Presentation ability through the Design thinking class. Design thinking class looks difficult for freshmen in the beginning because they don’t have any experiences anywhere yet. However, as they proceeded with the project, the participants in the first semester began to understand why design is needed, what the design role is, and gradually discovered their own creativity potential and expressive power for each area. Moreover, I have observed that their abilities improved in this class. Hence, I would like to show how the students' three abilities changed when they used or applied the process of design thinking and student survey. Keywords : Design thinking, Design Competence, Observation and Empathy ability, Creative thinking ability, Expression and Presentation ability
