In partnership with George Brown College, RGD welcomed educators from around the world to discuss the future of design education for our 3rd annual Design Educators Conference on November 5, 2015.
The Conference theme, transformation, considered how design and design education are transformative processes, and how design education itself is in a state of continual transformation.
"RGD's Design Educators Conference is an important opportunity to reflect on design pedagogy for people who are usually focused on the classroom," explains Elise Hodson, Chair, School of Design at George Brown College, and one of the conference organizers. "That many of the 2015 participants travelled from around the world to attend, then devoted time to write up their presentations and to support their peers by providing feedback on these papers, is indicative of the interest in this topic and the desire to keep the conversation going."
Essays by many of the Design Educators who presented at the Conference are now available to download!
