Designing for Flexibility

Topic schedule

While you are able to explore each of the topics in this series independently, we have scheduled a synchronous meeting for each.
These sessions offer an opportunity for you to discuss your thoughts, findings and issues with others, and to engage with guest 'experts' who have been invited to share their insights and experiences.
As an enrolled participant you will receive a notification/reminder for each.
While each session will be recorded to gain maximum benefit attendance is recommended as these are CONVERSATIONS not presentations.
