In this course, taught over Zoom, with two faculty in Canada and two in Denmark, and all students in Costa Rica, Vanessa did biweekly lectures on Designing for Meaningfulness in context, delving into topics such as in-context testing during Corona times (co-taught with faculty member Olivia Prior) and how our choices as designers impact the ecosystems such as that of the rich biodiversity of Costa Rica.
