The AX1 Sessions: A Masterclass Series in Good Design & its transferability into the Higher Education Classroom
The Dean of Teaching and Learning is delighted to host this series of Masterclasses in conjunction with Dr Threase Kessie, Design Innovation.
All of the masterclasses will focus on understanding how professional designers have developed the skills of intellectual curiosity, creativity, adaptability, and empathy in their work, and how this understanding might help lecturers consider alternative ways of fostering these skills in the classroom.
We are delighted to welcome Roisin Markham, BDT Consultancy Ltd., to lead the first session entitled 'How do we create a future worth living into?' on Thursday 15th February at 2pm.
This session will be an interactive workshop exploring living with questions, post-growth society, doughnut economics, imagination and the value of design in experiential learning.
To attend, please register at our Eventbrite link.
