Still Drawing – Design and Collaboration in a Virtual World -  1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Tuesday, April 27, 2021

1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT

To create more equitable ideas, we need to create an inclusive design process with multiple and sometimes conflicting points of views. Our current WFH situation is a potential danger, forcing our design process and ideas to become more siloed. Equitable access to design technology coupled with the intentional incorporation of virtual tools will help us bridge the creativity and collaboration gap caused by the physical separation of our teams.

As our profession continues to develop a comfort level with remote-working situations, this course will help empower your site design process by evolving your design methods, technologies, and application. Through the knowledge received from this course, you will be able to further design with health, safety and welfare in mind, even when working in unconventional office environments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how drawing still matters in virtual design and collaboration.
  • Explore virtual tools and techniques for design and collaboration.
  • Understand what we have learned through this year of drawing and collaboration.
  • Consider how virtual collaboration translates into a hybrid office model.
