This is not about Design Education, specifically. This is about the new learning models that are popping up and competing with the more traditional models, like your regular university degree or boring company training. We are going to talk about some alternative learning models and how they differ in this day and age, where on one end, if you want a deep-dive one-on-one tailored experience you can get private mentoring sessions with an industry expert, or on the other end, if you don't have that money to spend and are really just starting out on a new field, you can start with free and publicly available content from one of the worlds best universities through a massive open online course platform like Coursera or edX.
There is already a lot of options out there and usually, since learning happens outside the typical classroom, we should definitely reinvent a system that was inspired by the factory models of the beginning of the industrial revolution, more than 150 years ago. We should at least try to design it for the future.
So, let's talk about that, and let's get together once again next Tuesday, February 19th, starting at 18:30, at the Ironhack Campus in Lisbon (and yes, what better place to talk about Learning than at a Web Dev and UX/UI Bootcamp Campus). We will have three speakers and a panel discussion afterward, and also some snacks and drinks as well.
As usual, if you are interested in learning and educational models, please register as soon as you can because the spots are limited and they usually run out pretty quickly.
You can also find a sister meetup of this one on the Ironhack Meetup group here: https://www.meetup.com/ironhack-lisbon/events/258936087
Stay cool and see you there! =)
