Call for Panel Abstracts for fall AIGA Educators Conference
New ventures are propelling design educators and students to re-think how, where and what types of experiences best serve a design education in the 21st century.
» How does a program’s location within a school, college or university create broader opportunities for learning as well as more defined, discipline specific learning?
» What potential collaborations occur when new partners emerge?
» How do different student cultures work together? (i.e. business, engineering and graphic design students).
» How can faculty from different disciplines co-create a new model of design education?
From the creation of new types of graduate programs (DMBA), to the physical creation of design think tanks and venture accelerator programs on campuses — a new landscape of collaboration, intersection and adventure is quickly emerging. Join fellow design educator and professionals in the vibrant design community of Portland, Oregon for two inspiring days of exciting intersections in the form of panel sessions, poster presentations, a juried student show, and lively conversation!
