Thank you for your interest in the course "Magnificent Life” which will start next Monday 5.11.
The schedule for Day 1 will be as follows:
10.15–11.15 Session I
11.30–12.30 Session II
13.45–15.00 Session III
Smoothie break with tender and dynamic discussions
15.30–17.00 Session IV
Our cohort is explosive. There will be 120 fascinating individuals, each with their unique personalities and human future projections, from all the different schools of Aalto University (ARTS, BIZ, CHEM, ELEC, ENG, SCI) along with some Aalto faculty and staff members, visiting faculty plus also participants from the University of Helsinki Veterinary Medicine.
The venue is the legendary The Stage of Aalto Design Factory (Betonimiehenkuja 5, Espoo), the key site for interdisciplinary, cutting edge undertakings since the beginning of Aalto.
Please try to arrive early as I want to start at 10.15 with full force and focus with our tremendous group and with themes that truly count.
Please also make sure that you have singled out the Day 2 of our seminar entirely for the purpose of the course and for engaging personally in investigations of Magnificent Life. Physical presence is a key element in this experience-rich undertaking, as nobody can think your thoughts except just You. Day 2, as you will recall, is Monday 19.11. and schedule will be as on Day 1.
The official website in MyCourses is now fully updated. Note especially the tabs "Dialogical Meeting", “Reflective Reading" and “Reflection Essay”. They list the details of the exciting tasks that will be part of the completion of the course for study credits. Deadlines for the tasks are:
Dialogical Meeting, Mon 12.11. 23:59
Reflective Reading, Fri 16.11. 23:59
Reflection Essay, Wed 5.12. 23:59
As you might have noticed, there are no pre-assignments to this “course”. This is intentional. We are looking beyond tasks and assignments into our personal life and take seriously the idea that each of us can become more focused as ourselves, with more personal impact of the kind that aligns with our innermost values and aspirations.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our very able and creative course assistant Eero (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am so excited to meeting you at Design Factory next Monday at 10!
With best wishes,
