This article (15 page PDF) describes the Carpe Diem design methodology and recounts its application at a South African university. The "process draws on agile collaborative project development, creative and visual techniques" such that "every moment during the workshop is spent on designing something that can be put into immediate use with learners." The workshop was conducted at Stellenbosch University and surveys indicated a continued impact from the program six months after the event. "Staff thought that the workshop valued their contribution to the ongoing educational transformation process at SU by providing effective practical support."
