Design Educators Conference

For the past 4 years, in partnership with a different educational institution, RGD invited design educators to consider the future of creative education.


In 2016, the Conference speakers explored the connections and disconnects of education with the goal to stimulate learning.  As students and technology evolve, how is education changing to meet the needs of the new learner? What technologies or techniques will encourage learning? Where are the pain points for educators and learners?


The 2015 Conference theme was Transformation. The speakers considered how design and design education are transformative processes, and how design education itself is in a state of continual transformation. Take a look at the conference proceedings here.
