LEAP Dialogues: Educator’s Guide

“Since the 2016 Designmatters publication LEAP Dialogues: Career Pathways in Design for Social Innovation edited by Mariana Amatullo, Bryan Boyer, Liz Danzico and Andrew Shea, we have heard from many educators and students from around the world who have embraced the publication and used the content as an integral part of their studies and curricula. Inspired by these stories, Designmatters decided to create LEAP Dialogues: The Educator’s Guide, an open-source digest of some original content from the book along with new resources specifically tailored to educators.

The Educator’s Guide contains 12 select dialogues, each accompanied by a set of open-ended questions to provoke critical reading and to jumpstart classroom discussion. Five case studies are included to ground the theoretical discussions about the future of careers by showing what the emerging field looks like. Unique to this Guide is an annotated bibliography that provides students with complementary readings on topics related to designing for social innovation to inspire new and expanded directions of study.” from DesignMatters website
