In this course, students map the emerging field of transdisciplinary design and examine their development in relation to it. Students present how their work meets the needs of the industry and how they themselves fill the emerging roles for designers. The course emphasizes communication; students must formulate a strong argument—through writing and visual representation of their work—for their practice. What are each student’s core skills and how do those fit within larger institutional and professional capacities? What communities will they be serving? What kinds of firms are doing this type of work? Students produce a five-year plan and a working portfolio (analog, digital, and web-based) that places their work within a broader context. Visiting industry professionals describe their own career paths and how they navigated professional networks to find work.
