Together with the Wildcards Community, we will be hosting a hands-on workshop around the design of professional social platforms.
Our focus will be on re-imagining "people-exchange" platforms such as linkedin, and rethinking what it means to represent yourself on a professional social platform. We will engage in some benchmarking of two-sided marketplaces for work, such as upwork.com, where one "gives" and the other "takes" (with regard to user value).
We will ideate what really makes a professional platform work, and what can make it stand out. We will be prototyping a minimum set of tools for a platform where personal skills can be marketed and traded.
Please welcome the Wildcards, a community for academics who seek to re-imagine their careers with digital tools.
