This course focuses on applying the design process to our own futures, using a creative but structured hands-on design strategies to defining our next professional chapter. Reflective and reflexive practice will form the backbone of our approach to career development, defining goals, self-analysis, skills identification and alignments, engaging with industry, preparing for interviews, strategical development, visual mapping techniques, research and analysis and identification of self attributes.
