This panel discusses how to balance the need to deliver crafted design content with the need to build resilient and resourceful designers for an ever-changing industry. The webinar will be structured in the following format: The moderator will start with questions for each of the panelists, then we move to an open forum and finally take questions from the audience. The webinar will be about 1 hour in length.
Our panelists will answer the following questions:
What does modern-day resiliency look like?
How do employers know they are getting a flexible, adaptable designer who can change and mold with the times?
Defining why we need resilient designers. Why does this matter just as much as their portfolio?
How do we prepare designers for complete shifts in the working experience and changes in delivery and content?
How do we both deliver and challenge the students to be resourceful and self sufficient?
