While following the path of great designer the learner can develop literally all of their 21ct skills aka ‘soft skills’. In this course we are doing the ‘full cycle’ from finding the problem to creating a solution. From finding the question and asking the question to answering it ourselves. The key is the facilitation and we aim to provide you a good example on how to perform that.
