Why I Teach Courses in Product Design & Development

Our world is full of unstructured problems, whose solutions require capabilities that include both creative ideas and analytic expertise. Working your way through product design challenges and developing appropriate solutions is a great vehicle to discover and develop these capabilities in yourself. As a teacher, I am committed to helping students to develop and nurture these capabilities on their journey through experiential learning experiences.
