Please join us at the upcoming AIGA Design Educators Conference, “New Contexts / New Practices,” to be held October 8–10, 2010 in Raleigh, North Carolina at NC State University. “New Contexts/New Practices” will generate and publish ideas about how design education will address the defining trends of contemporary practice and culture. This authoring conference will build consensus and action plans for where we should be heading if graphic design is to remain relevant in the 21st century and if we are to achieve the competencies outlined in AIGA Defining the Designer of 2015.


Please note for our two peer-reviewed submission opportunities: “Co-authoring” and “Forum presentations.” For details, guidelines and submission deadlines, visit our dedicated conference website: and see sections: “How You can Become a Co-Author” and “How You can Become a Forum Presenter,” respectively. By request, the deadline for Co-Author submissions has been extended to August 15th.


A pre-conference workshop on “Designing Flexible Curricula” will be held on the afternoon of October 8, immediately before the opening of the conference. The workshop will address the design of curricular structures that respond to shifting conditions for the field; structures that are agile and that consider pedagogical approaches within rapidly changing social, economic, and technological imperatives. Registration for the pre-conference workshop is limited to conference attendees only (100 seats available) and requires a separate, additional fee ($15).


Registration is now open. For details visit our dedicated conference website:
