The Student Life Cycle: Designing for Student Success

PC 39

The pressure to improve student success outcomes is ever present. Institutional leaders are responding with innovative approaches to leading their organizations across the entire student life cycle. From recruitment to graduation, to careers, and ultimately, a lifelong alumni connection – leaders are experimenting with new ways to intentionally design for engagement and learning outcomes with new methodologies like design thinking. In this workshop, executive leaders from Berklee College of Music and an experience design partner, Kinetic Seeds will engage seasoned leaders in an interactive workshop that will advance their knowledge of how experience design can be used in practice to drive student-centered innovation and organizational change throughout the life-cycle of the student. The concepts that will be introduced during this session are applicable to all types of institutions.
