Have big plans for all you want to accomplish this summer? Nervous that May has already slipped away? Backwards design can help you achieve your goals. Although the concept of backwards design is most often used with planning academic courses, it can be effectively utilized for project and schedule management as well. At this hands-on PLAN workshop for graduate students, you will learn the basics of backwards design and begin mapping out the process for achieving your summer goals.

Additional Information: See the PLAN website for more information and to register.
