Opening Plenary: Building the Next Generation Designer

The future is being built today by the next generation of designers. Within the next few years, these early-stage designers will easily make up over 50% of the workforce. Companies will have to change how they operate with these workers. Managers will need to change how they interact with these young employees.

In this talk, Dr. Cassini Nazir will explore the characteristics of these designers. He has been developing curriculum at the University of Texas at Dallas for the past decade. In his ArtSci Lab, he takes deep dives with undergraduate and master’s level students as they solve tomorrow’s problems today.
