Have you ever wondered how design could be applied to curriculum and learning delivery in education? Or how we might incorporate design to positively impact the experience of learners? If you are an educator who is keen to find out the answers to these questions, join us for an interactive, engaging, and virtually-delivered workshop by Maureen Carroll, Ph.D., and Lois Logan, M.S.!

About the Collaboration
In conjunction with the National Design Centre’s ‘Design Learning’ programme line-up for February 2021, and the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI)’s quarterly thematic event on ‘Design and Innovation’, the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) and LLI have come together to profile the design sector - how design plays an increasingly important role in education, helping businesses to innovate, as well as the exciting career and skills training opportunities available. Through the series of activities lined up, Dsg and LLI hope to raise awareness and interest in design, encourage a spirit of continuous learning, and help our students and jobseekers get a head start in exploring a career in design.

This event is part of the National Design Centre's "Design Learning" programme line-up for February 2021.
