Join Us for SHIFT{ed} 2021

This week-long online event seeks to gather the design education community to take stock of where we are, what we have learned, and what we want to do next. The summit will focus on themes of Teaching, Research, and Community, and will feature multiple ways for participants to engage with each other and the content—including asynchronous panel presentations, synchronous virtual roundtables, online forums for discussion, and more. We will bring back all the things you loved about SHIFT, and plan to add some new and exciting activities and ways to engage as well.

Volunteers Needed

We are seeking volunteers from the community to help us make SHIFT{ed} happen!

Volunteer roles include:

  • Volunteers willing to help out with the back-end running of the summit, and with helping us to record and edit the live events

All volunteers will receive our undying gratitude and a formal letter of thanks that can be used for annual reviews and promotion materials. If you are interested or have questions, please email Liese Zahabi.

Call for Submissions for Design Program Virtual Tours

As part of the SHIFT{ed} Summer Summit programming, we are seeking short video recordings from YOU, sharing a brief overview of your design programs and classrooms! We want to see the spaces you teach in, the technology you use to teach, and hear about your curriculum, the focus/philosophy of your program, and most importantly, an overview of who your students are.
