Professor Phillips has recently taken up a Director of Faculty Development position at TTK University coming from a background of over 10 years in corporate training. Her predecessor, Professor X complained that his major challenge was motivating the TTK faculty to attend faculty development sessions which would prepare them for teaching in an online environment. Several of his faculty indicated that the faculty development sessions took up too much time and were held at inappropriate times. They indicated that they would rather spend the time preparing for their course than with learning new technology. Several of the faculty requested the use of a Teaching Assistant (TA) who would do all the “technical work” for them in the online course. However, with recent budget cuts, The TTK University has indicated that they would not be hiring TAs for all courses and that all faculty must receive online training prior to teaching online. Professor Phillips first assignment in her new post is to design a training program that would encourage and motivate her faculty to be engaged and creative in an online teaching environment.

Utilizing the early stages of design thinking, describe briefly how you would approach this design challenge.
Define the problem.
To get you started with Design Thinking and defining the problem, you can ask yourself questions such as:

"What exactly are the reasons the user's needs are not being met?"
"What do they think, feel, see, hear, say or do?"
"How might I design a solution that takes their specific needs into consideration?"
Brainstorm ideas to solve the problem.
Now it's your turn to brainstorm as many ideas as you can, while suspending judgement. The sky is the limit here.
Post your best idea here!
