The writing and publishing challenge
Presented by Aaris Sherin
As design educators we are increasingly asked to do it all. We need to excel in the classroom, provide service to our institution, maintain a professional practice and publish and engage in design-related scholarship.
Aaris discusses design scholarship with an emphasis on the intersection of professional practice and writing. Information about discipline specific journals and book publishers will be included as well as detailed descriptions of time allotment, word counts and other practical resources relevant to design writing and publishing. Learn about the competencies needed to successfully develop encyclopedia entries, reviews, journal articles, book proposals and manuscripts. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions related to design publishing and authorship.
