Program attendees will learn how to engage students at their institution by applying discovery techniques, design thinking, journey mapping, and purposeful facilitation techniques to traditional programming and design problems. The session will be convened by Jennifer Wise, Assistant Facilities Planner of the Office of the Architect at UVA.
