CREATE Professional Skills Modules Available

DFP's CREATE Grad Training Program provides students with professional development modules to help them hone their research skills. These modules have been carefully crafted by the DFP team to provide our students with the professional skills they will need to excel in the human-centered design community, and are a key part of the CREATE. Thank you to our facilitators both within and outside DFP for helping to deliver our workshops!
