RGD launches call for papers for new Academic Journal

Deadline for submissions is November 9, 2019


RGD’s International Journal of Graphic Design Pedagogy and Practice is a platform for discourse on the role of design education and design educators in the 21st century. 


The Journal explores aspects of teaching and learning in a visual communication design context, including: curriculum development, design research, critical pedagogy, strategies and methodologies. RGD welcomes submissions from educators, practitioners and students that include case studies, pilot and research projects and literature reviews. 


Design has tremendous power to engage with global, social, economic, cultural and environmental challenges. It is useful for design educators to reflect on where design has been and to think about where it will go in order to understand how design pedagogy can prepare students to be agents of and for change. What considerations and issues must educators address in order to best prepare the next generation of designers?


"RGD’s International Journal of Graphic Design Pedagogy and Practice is a new undertaking that aims to support designers working in academic realms or engaged in graduate studies with a platform for dissemination of research and critical pedagogical practices. RGD is excited about this new venture and hopes that it might strengthen Canada's academic community and expand our connections worldwide." explains Saskia van Kampen RGD's VP of Education and Chair of RGD's Education Committee. 


By examining the evolving contexts and practices of design around the world, we seek areas of opportunity in which design curricula and the industry can evolve. The purpose of the RGD International Journal of Graphic Design Pedagogy and Practice is to create a collective of design practitioners, academics and educators. The sustainability of the Journal depends on respectful and reciprocal collaboration—those who write for the Journal also participate as peer reviewers.
