The Tubelight - how I learned things years after they were taught to me
talk – 20 min | Feb 4 – 14:00
The word Tubelight is used to refer to someone who is slow or “lights up” too late. In this short talk Aditi will share stories as she questions her traditional Bauhaus design education and how it “clicked” only years later. How her corporate training only made sense in another job. Question how learning design truly works and listen to a bunch of contradictory teachings from the design world.
