Idea group to host West Michigan design week

The InterDisciplinary Entrepreneurship Alliance (IDEA) group will help celebrate West Michigan Design Week with a presentation by Deb Tolsma on how to better prepare students for the business world.

Tolsma was the former manager of global learning and development at Steelcase. In her presentation, Tolsma will focus on how to teach design thinking, collaboration and new problem solving strategies to young students before they go off into the business world.

Titled “IDEA presents Deb Tolsma,” the event will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 2 in the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences in room 123.
