Designing your life after UNIL
19 and 26 March 2021
|Langue||Workshop language is English|
Over two half-days, we will use design thinking to help participants come up with and prototype ideas for their professional future. This approach, created by Bill Burnet and Dave Evans at Stanford University, will give you the tools to make decisions, learn more about your career options, and confidently leverage your network of connections at UNIL, CHUV and beyond to support you as you test out different plans for your future.
Participants will be asked to complete some preliminary work including reflection and reading/viewing ahead of the first day (approximately 1-2 hours), and transfer work prior to the second day (around one hour).
On the first day, we will review design thinking, its application to career thinking, and the importance of autonomy, mastery and purpose. This will set the ground for thinking about our personal and professional strengths, the activities that give us energy, and the wild ideas to help us think about what we might do.
On the second day, we will work on our ideas in order to start thinking about how to test them out, see what might fit, and the tools and resources that we can put to work in order to help us decide the best way forward.
We will use individual and group activities inspired by the design thinking process. Be ready to share and to think creatively!
Timing: 09:00 to 13:00 both days.
This workshop is designed to follow on from the Career Café. If you have not yet attended a Career Café with the Graduate Campus, you will be asked on registration to explain when and how you have already received career-related counselling or training, whether in a group or individually.
