Design Educators Conference 2017

Each year, in partnership with a different educational institution, RGD invites design educators to consider the future of creative education.

 

The 2017 Design Educators Conference takes place Monday, November 6 at Ryerson University, coinciding with RGD's DesignThinkers Conference.

 

Presenters will discuss this year's theme, Learning From the World, For the World.

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? 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.
