Ellen Lupton Lecture and Workshop – Design is Storytelling

Ellen Lupton led a “Design is Storytelling” lecture and workshop in the core MDE course Integrative Frameworks: Technology, Environment, and Society II. The workshop walked students through narrative structures and effective writing techniques before students workshopped their own project statements. As part of effective communication, MDE students develop project narratives and refine their delivery.
