  • Presented by Jordan Jackson Student RGD at RGD's AGM on April 27, 2017


    This years 2016-2017 Student Committee consisted of 23 students from various schools and program levels from Toronto, London, Ottawa, Barrie and Hamilton. The committee met once a month (mostly virtually) to discuss plans for the year, on going as well as new projects, and student involvement in upcoming events.


    The committee main project last summer was to develop the new student website. That is still in the works, with most of the back end development being finished, and only content and some functionality to be figured out. The committee also worked a lot on engaging student involvement on the Facebook group, and that has seemed to keep moving forward as well, with new students joining every month.


    Taking advantage of this, this year’s committee decided to come up with new ideas on how to provide more content that students could directly benefit from. The committee benefited from having a member with experience on creating a podcast, and we thought creating our own would be a great channel for getting information from the industry to the students. The committee collected questions from each of their schools, worked to refine them, and recorder their first podcast on April 26th. There will be more scheduled to happen throughout the summer.


    With both DesignThinkers and Creative Directions happening through the 2016- 2017 year, the committee also helped promote both RGD and these events through word of mouth, social media and printed materials. The committee was able to share a volunteer table at Creative Directions (along with the Provisional RGD’s) to promote the student committee for the upcoming school year as well as RGD benefits. These methods interested various students attending the event and we hope to see their involvement in the future.
