“In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists” (Eric Hopper). If your goals, aspirations, and dreams are based on what you already know, then you can never go further than you have been. In this class, we will help you think like a designer to build your future, with the same kind of curiosity and creativity that resulted in the automobile, telephone and the internet, prototype by prototype. You will develop tools to enable you to determine the direction you want to go when you don’t know your destination. Through exploration, self-awareness, discussions and reflection, you will learn tools to create a purposeful life, aligning who you are with what you want to do.
