RGD announces partnership with George Brown College for 2015 Design Educators Conference
21/01/15

In partnership with the School of Design at George Brown College, RGD invites design educators to consider the future of Design Education at the 3rd annual Design Educators Conference, happening in Toronto, on Saturday, November 14.

 

Coinciding with RGD's DesignThinkers Conference, the event will feature presentations, roundtable discussions and working sessions as we explore how design curricula and classrooms are evolving. How are design schools embracing new models of collaboration and interdisciplinary education? How do design schools effect change in and outside of school walls? How do we plan and design for uncertain futures?

 

“We are pleased to be partnering with RGD to organize the 2015 Design Educators conference. This is a landmark annual event for the design community and a wonderful opportunity to consider the changing role of design schools in shaping future design thinkers. We look forward to sharing research, experiences and best practices with educators from around the world.” said Luigi Ferrara, George Brown's Dean for the Centre for Arts and Design.

 

Transformation

This year's theme considers how design and design education are transformative processes, and how design education itself is in a state of continual transformation. Design pedagogy must respond to new technologies, evolving labour market demands and professional practices, as well as changing student demographics and needs. At the same time, design school is a place to experiment, innovate and put forth new ideas to see how the world responds.

 

Date: Saturday, November 14, 2015
Location: George Brown College School of Design, 230 Richmond St E, Toronto
