The Creative Muscle

May 31, 2019

If you want to learn and grow, do you have to go back to school and get a Master’s Degree? Victor Saad designed his own Master’s by completing 12 projects in 12 months. He called it The Leap Year Project and his experiences culminated with staging his own graduation at a local TEDx and publishing a book of stories focused on the power of learning through risk. He later launched Experience Institute, a program for college students and career professionals to learn and grow through short-term, real-world experiences. In 2015, he was inducted into Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in the field of education. In 2017 he joined the team at Stanford’s School of Engineering as a Lecturer in Design. This week he joins The Creative Muscle to talk about how to expand your comfort zone, how to keep a learner’s mindset, and how to decide what to do next.
