Design Institute 2017

Participants in the PDP attend one of the Design Institutes offered in April, based upon the region of their teaching venue. Design Institutes include a substantial amount of time (~8 hours) in which teams work together on their designs, in consultation with PDP staff instructors.

Design time is broken up by sessions to guide teams and stimulate new ideas, and there are team-led activities (PDP “design tools”) that help teams in targeted areas of the design process.
