AIGA Design Educators Conference (Portland September 2014): Call for Panel Session Proposals

AIGA Design Educators Conference
New Ventures: Intersections in Graphic Design Education
Portland, Oregon – September 12 + 13, 2014

CALL FOR PANEL SESSION PROPOSALS
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.

PANEL SESSION PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DETAILS
Deadline: February 17, 2014 – 5:00pm (PST)
New Ventures: Intersections in Graphic Design Education, will be organized around 16-24 panel sessions.
Each session is made up of 3-4 speakers and organized by the panel session moderator.

  • 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 educators in the vibrant design community of Portland for two inspiring days of exciting intersections in the form of panel sessions, poster presentations, a juried student show, and lively conversation!
