Sometimes finding inspiration for your course comes from memories of your favorite teacher, sometimes it comes from your colleagues, and sometimes, it comes where you least expect it. Inspired by Design hopes to introduce possibilities into your inspiration. We will meet at various locations around town to see how learning occurs in various ways – reaching our emotions, our thoughts, and our community, both directly and indirectly. We’ll follow up each visit with a conversation amongst colleagues to discuss what we experienced.

Setting, Ceremony, and Consensus: BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Atlanta

If you haven’t been to the BAPS mandir in Lilburn you’re in for quite a transcendent experience. On this trip we’ll be touring the largest traditional Hindu Stone temple outside of India! You’ll also have the option of participating in or observing the daily Arti ceremony. This time we’ll be considering the question: How do the designs of setting and ceremony interact to bring people to a common understanding?

Note: Admission and other costs at various locations, if required, are not covered by GSU. Each participant is also responsible for their own travel to and from the venues. We understand that this makes these events more difficult to attend, so if you are looking for events on campus, please look at our workshop schedule.
