Designing Your Life: Odyssey Planning for Juniors & Seniors – 8/31 @ 2:30-3:45pm EST
Design thinking is a solutions-based, creative process used to address challenges. It is rooted in empathy and driven by ongoing feedback, reflection, and iteration. Joseph Catrino, Executive Director of Student Success and Career Development, will introduce Design Thinking as well as some hands-on ways you can use it in challenging parts of your life. In this workshop you will generate ideas and get creative about your future. You will sketch three different five-year journeys. These journeys will include visuals, dashboards, and guiding questions. Odyssey Plans can not only initiate further coaching and career/life planning, but also encourage small experiments, curiosity, and self-discovery about our different possible futures.
