We so often go about our life without taking a moment to pause and reflect on the rich portfolio of experiences that make up who we are. If we did, imagine the amazing insights we could mine to inform and launch our next set of adventures. Emily Tsiang, Fellow, shares Designing Your Life with The School of Life Taipei.
What if we can navigate through life and tackle critical decision making with design thinking? “Designing Your Life” is a class taught at Stanford University (the school’s “most popular class,” according to Fast Company magazine) that trains students to think like designers when it comes to tackling wicked problems in life. On 6/26 (Monday), Emily Tsiang, Life Design Fellow at Stanford, will guide us through an interactive workshop.
This will be our first prototype of a 4-day Life Design Studio. This highly immersive and interactive studio is for leading innovative educators in institutions of higher learning looking to be intentional about how students reflect on their experiences and build their future. Find out more here.
