For many of us, the isolation and downtime we have experienced in the last couple months due to the Coronovirus has us thinking more about what our future holds. You may have asked yourself some big questions: “What am I doing with my life? What could I be doing? And how do I pivot?” In this two-part workshop, you will be introduced to design thinking based on the best-selling book, Design Your Life, by Bill Burnett and Dale Evans of Stanford University. You will learn the approach Nebraska University Career Services, inspired by life design concepts, created to facilitate career/life design and development.

Part 1 will be a recorded presentation introducing the theory behind life design and providing activities for you to apply logic, imagination, intuition, and experimentation to your life. You will be able to produce blueprints for your future (or futures) with some clear next steps on how to test it, prepare for it, and adjust it as life happens.

Presenters: Tracy Lungrin, director of University Career Services; Emily Wilber, assistant director at University Career Services.
