Even if you’re not planning to attend the entire “Gain: AIGA Design and Business Conference” this fall, you can still participate in our workshop addressing the future of design education.
Online registration is now closed. Onsite registration will open at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 22.
What’s the future of design education, and what does it look like? Increasingly, design systems—rather than artifacts—are the focus of design curricula. Such systems encompass both print and interactive experiences and look to social sciences for human-centered research methods. But where does this leave craft? And how can educators fit such complex experiences within a two- or three-year program?
In this two-part workshop, Liz Danzico, chair of the M.F.A in Interaction Design program at the School of Visual Arts, will lead a hands-on experience that explores evolving models for design education. Immediately following, a panel of design educators will discuss how we might reimagine design education and what design curricula of the future might look like.
