After a day of intense exams, #DesignAcademyEindhoven Bachelor students graduated this week in front or peers, family, examination committees and department heads, who took the stage to congratulate their students, sharing anecdotes of their challenges, obstacle and final successes.
During their graduation welcomes, Department heads often share anecdotes of particular students who confound them. They speak affectionately of clashes, creative conflicts and personal exasperations. All part of the educational trajectory, the back and forth and final breakthroughs that make the learning process all the more meaningful.
Of particular note at this week's ceremony was Simon Dogger who is blind. Dogger graduated from the Man and Communication department. “His success reveals that communication is never just visual,” said department head Catelijne van Middelkoop. “Communication, even in a tech environment, comes from all the senses.” .
