Teaching


IIT Institute of Design 
Since 2009 I have taught various courses at the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago. I currently teach Design Connoisseurship and Introduction to Design. Both courses introduce the history and dynamics of the design field to new designers across all levels of experience, from executive leaders to young designers just starting their careers.


CEDIM Master of Business Innovation
Beginning in 2013, I teach Being Unique and Competitive in CEDIM’s Master of Business Innovation program in Monterrey, Mexico. The course focuses on generating compelling user experience concepts through prototyping which clearly stand out from the competition and have full business potential.
