Session Organizer/Presenter Event Type
Birds of a Feather
TimeThursday, September 173:45pm - 4:30pm
LocationWilliam Wulf Room
DescriptionIn the midst of moving as quickly as our browsers take to load, there is power in pausing and reflecting on the current processes, forms of communication (or lack thereof), and other mechanisms that have become normalized and continue to impact our selves, teams, organizations, and companies. In the same light, these findings can provide students and faculty alike an alternative way to approach course structures, policies, and guidelines. Taking from the process that Brené Brown proposes in her book Rising Strong, as well as key learnings Mariela has developed, this session will provide methodologies on how to transform the ways in which we approach and navigate through the many systems we are embedded in. By re-imaging what the tech space looks like as of now, both in classrooms and in corporate buildings, we will have the opportunity to learn about new forms of thought as a community.
