The AIGA Design Educators Community (DEC) was established in 2004 to support the unique activities and responsibilities of the design educator at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels in a wide variety of institutional settings. The goals of this community are to facilitate communication among design educators; create, foster and promote dialogue; produce design education events such as conferences and competitions; present current research and teaching methods; establish standards for design education; differentiate between design’s various subdisciplines; raise the level of design-driven thinking in schools across the country; and communicate the value of design education to the larger profession.
Subjects of interest to this community span teaching, research and service. They include curriculum and program development, design theory and history, methodology, typography, usability research, and the social roles of designers, as well as tenure, promotion, teaching standards and school accreditation.

In this webinar, learn why design research is an investigation based
on empathy, insight and understanding—and how it can help designers discover what tasks people
accomplish with digital services and devices, where they want to perform
these tasks and what kind of information they need to complete them.
The Chia Co’s COO April Helliwell and CMO Teresa Aprile don’t just help
run the growing company—they also design those cool pods you’re starting
everywhere from major grocery chains to small convenience stores all
around the world.
