V. Becoming an LIDT Professional

Becoming an LIDT professional is more than knowing some theory, and having some design or technical skills. You must learn how to network with other professionals, engage with professional organizations, and perhaps (hopefully!) contribute your growing insights back to the research and design literature through publication. These chapters will seek to guide you on this journey, as well as in establishing a moral foundation for your work as an LIDT professional.
