The video of Daniel R. Porterfield‘s keynote address at the Second Annual Formation by Design Symposium, given on June 16, 2015, is now available.

Porterfield, a Georgetown alumnus, is President of Franklin & Marshall College and former Senior Vice President for Strategic Development at Georgetown. In his keynote, he emphasized that designing systems the support formation is about creating the right context in the right ethos so the difficult choices are easy to make in the moment, and symposium participants engaged in a design activity to prototype around his words.
One of the products that came out of the Symposium was an online interactive workspace for Formation by Design, a networked inquiry community that unites faculty, administrators, and innovators globally who are dedicated to designing for whole person learning in an informal and collaborative online environment.
