The best things in life are free.
Going outside is free. Connecting with nature is free. And now, learning a sustainable design methodology based on nature’s functional strategies is free!
The Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s Master of Arts in Sustainable Design program is partnering with Canvas.net to offer the 4-week online course Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design Methodology, starting March 25th.
This course will be a fun introduction to biomimicry, a sustainability framework where you will learn how to use nature’s best design ideas to help solve human design challenges. It is designed for people who are new to biomimicry and are looking for a convenient (online) introduction. In addition to readings and video, you get to practice what you learn with weekly assignments (ungraded – no pressure) and engaging discussions with your fellow participants and instructor.
The course will run for 4 weeks, from March 25 to April 21, 2019.
The course will be hosted by Denise DeLuca, Director of MCAD’s MA in Sustainable Design. You’ll also be learning from Cindy Gilbert, founding and former director of the MA program. Two program alumni, Aoife Fahey and Shannon Reece will be assisting as your course mentors.
Course registration is now open. Sign up today — it’s free!
