Life Design Studio for University Educators

APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR 2017

If you are interested in the next studio, please fill out this interest form to stay in the loop.

Thank you to all who applied to the June Studio! 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. During the studio, teams will experience the life design curriculum first hand, discuss with members of the Life Design Lab the underlying learning objectives and pedagogy behind the tools, and work with others to customize the life design curriculum for use at your institution.
