In this lecture/workshop course, students will learn about “knowledge assets" and become skilled at identifying, highlighting and articulating the value of their competencies. The lecture portion of this course will introduce fundamental concepts including: narrative, goal assessment, human capital and intellectual development, along with effective industry engagement. Workshop sessions are dedicated to the articulation of individual expertise and interests through the production of knowledge assets identified by each individual student to address their needs. Students are challenged to integrate diverse and sometimes fragmented learning experiences into coherent bodies of knowledge. Students in the School of Design Strategies face an additional challenge as a result of the processes and media with which they work -- that of articulating the value of competencies that are embedded in - and often obscured by - the production of complex artifacts.

Open to: School of Design Strategies undergraduate degree students, seniors only. Co-requisite: PSDS 4111 Navigating the Field: Workshop. Pre-Requisite: PSDS 3430 Strategic Management or PSDS 3160 Creatives and Entrepreneurship.
