Design Thinking Principles for Career Development Learning

Thu July 28/Fri July 29, 2022
Susan Mate and Freda Zapasalis

To Update Us!  International and Emerging Career Development Practices

Our APCDA Guest Speakers will explore Design Thinking (DT) as a mindset, skill, and process (Wright & Wrigley, 2019). This will be done through an overview of how DT principles have been embedded in undergraduate and postgraduate career programs offered at a university in Melbourne.

Through these examples, we answer the following questions:

How can design principles be used to teach students about career development learning?

How do we incorporate design thinking with other career development theoretical frameworks?

This webinar topic will benefit career practitioners working with clients to explore careers and their decision-making through the use of 21st-century skills and character qualities such as resilience, creativity, and critical thinking (World Economic Forum, 2015).
