Bluffton’s Prothro named Design Your Life certified coach

BLUFFTON, Ohio— Marathana Prothro, assistant professor of communication at Bluffton University, has been named a Designing Your Life certified coach. 

As an instructor for Bluffton’s Becoming a Scholar class, Prothro incorporates a design thinking pedagogical approach within the curriculum for Bluffton’s first-year students. This curriculum methodology was originally developed by Stanford University and modified for Bluffton’s use.
