The Designing Your Life (DYL) process applies design thinking principles to tackling the "wicked" problems of life and career (Burnette and Evans, 2016). This session will showcase how McGill and UBC have mobilized students, faculty and staff to help students design their lives through a variety of initiatives including staff training, student-facing activities, Individual Development Planning (IDP) and Communities of Practice.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Describe the DYL framework for life and career;
  • Describe our prototyping experiences at McGill and UBC;
  • Generate one actionable conversation/experience to prototype at your institution
