Designing Futures launched a lunchtime series for all university staff over March 2023. 

University staff were invited to attend the lunchtime series to learn more about Student Success Coaching, Transdisciplinary Modules, Vertically Integrated Projects and IdeasLab.

In particular these sessions focused on the student perspective of each of our programmes as well as how we work with and co-design programmes with our enterprise partners.

On the 6th of March our Student Success Coaches introduced coaching and explained it's many benefits for students. Student Success Coach Student Ambassadors, Chloe and Meret, spoke about their experience of the 'Design Your Life' module and why they engaged with Student Success Coaching. 

Transdisciplinary Research lecturer Dr Oonagh Meade then spoke about the many benefits students receive from being involved in the VIP programme and Dr Sinéad King presented on the benefits she experienced as a VIP Principal Investigator this semester.
