Home COVID-19 Mohawk Group offers free, virtual CEU programming

Calhoun, Ga.—For commercial architects and designers currently looking for learning and other professional development opportunities in the midst of a non-traditional workplace and social landscape, Mohawk Group is offering free digital CEU programming. The Resourceful CEU Series was created to provide outlets for the design community to revitalize their knowledge and renew their well-being while many are working remotely.

All continuing education courses take place through May 6 on Wednesdays from 12–1 p.m. EST. Each CEU is free to attend virtually, but all attendees must register to view and receive credit.

“We felt it important to provide the design community with impactful accredited opportunities to take deeper dives into a variety of subject matter,” said Jackie Dettmar, Mohawk Group’s vice president of design and product development. “We are thankful we are able to share the talents of our amazing team to bring unique digital learning experiences to those now juggling a new reality that includes spending more time working remotely.”

On April 8, Mohawk Group A&D design director, Royce Epstein, will present “Color + Design Vision 2020: Return to Humanity.” The course will highlight a focus on human-centered design through the lens of the company’s 2020 forecast. After several years of global turmoil, both humankind and nature are in dire need of renewal. The CEU asks and answers the questions: “How can we become more human in the presence of digital life and artificial intelligence; what makes us human and how do we get back there; how can we connect better with nature to remind us who we are?” Attendees will experience how design can inspire and motivate positive change in a shifting world dynamic as expressed through the hand, heart, and mind. This CEU is accredited through AIA and IDCEC. Click here to register.
