About this event

During this class, students will be provided with an introduction to concepts of critique and storytelling. This includes designing for stakeholders (within a design role at an organization) and recruiters (for job prep) for the first hour. For the second hour, students will present, while their cohort members will critique. 

This class will be offered in two parts, allowing time between classes for students to work on homework and develop their final project for their presentation on Monday, July 12 with their classmates.
