At 2018 SEGD Xlab, you will embark on a journey to explore the cutting-edge of experience design: first in a series of tours to studios and new projects in New York City and then, on the second day, in a series of talks about practice and new projects. There are plenty of opportunities to get together with friends and colleagues at event socials and meet new people to collaborate with.

This paper outlines a pedagogy for introducing students to the design process specifically in the area of Social Design. In a fast paced world where the established paradigm of defining a designers’ role is evolving rapidly, this paper elucidates the need for and presents a theoretical framework for a pedagogy that has been developed to help emerging designers understand the role they play in design practice today. The extended idea of design education is meant to shape the mindset of young designers as they prepare for the professional world outside.
Remember the fun you had going away to summer camp? Well, think about Xplorer as summer camp for Millennials and your boss as your mom or dad (at least as far as paying for camp is concerned!).
