Who is this toolkit for ?
Do you need to be a student to use this kit?Not at all – anyone interested in learning, creativity, and personal development could get plenty of inspiration from the sample doodles and exercises. I have been teaching self-making, creativity, design thinking, leadership, employability, and personal development for the last 15 years.Therefore, I have developed a wide range teaching methods and materials across these topics; most of which are visual. In this toolkit (i.e. diary) I have tried to make some of these exercises available to my students and the wider audience—young people interested in exploring and developing themselves and preparing themselves for the job market.
