Their value is regularly exploited for commercial purposes, in which digital processes are utilized to enhance t
  3. https://rgdhub.wufoo.com/forms/design-educators-conference-call-for-abstracts RGD is pleased to announce the return of our Design Educators Conference as a 3-day event taking place virtually October 21 to 23. The Conference has 5 themes: Empower [the learners]: How do you empower students to become active learners? How do we train and create an ecosystem of resilience? Embrace [the classroom]: What does the future classroom look like? What are the methodologies, technology and/or practices we need to embrace to move forward? Expand [the experienc
  4. While service is a broad subject and unique to each institution, it has always been my perspective to find aspects in the university environment that I appreciate and would like to be involved in. I had always done this regardless of my tenure track position or not – simply said university is my second home and I want to be involved in it. At our university ( Oklahoma State University) such things have included engaging with The Center for Sovereign Nations, International Students program, Global Studies, and the Graduate College. In each aspect I thrive to be engaged on a continuous basis and
  5. I'm seeking resources (videos, essays, books, etc.) to educate clients and strategists to collaborate with creative folk. I'm teaching a graduate course for business students pursuing a strategic advertising and marketing masters degree. I know from talking with them, that their most pressing desires is to learn how to evaluate creative work. Of course, we are also discussing the business value of design, and how they can best support and inspire the creative process. I've found many resources for creatives to understand strategy, and very little for the reverse. Thanks in adv
  6. The theme of the conference is Analogue and Digital Call for participations: Early call for entries.

  7. I created video tutorials using OBS and Twitch. I found it to be an elegant solution for me to be able to share my working screen, as well as my workspace. My students can also watch my recorded videos on Twitch on their phone, cast it onto their TV, while working with me on their computer.

  9. Carma Gorman chaired a session at CAA Conference 2020 that was very well attended and incredibly insightful. I'm hoping that a bunch of organizations (Design Incubation, Design Studies forum, AIGA DEC) can come together to develop a single document that cover's the majority of the Communication Design depts in the country. In speaking with Carma, she proposed a flexible document, almost a document wizard, that could support any dept at a variety of institutions to help develop their own standards. For instance, if you are a community college in the midwest that is situated within a busine
  10. "Present Yourself" is the Society for Experiential Graphic Design's newest initiative connecting students to their future careers and providing mentorship opportunities for professionals to engage the next wave of talent. Each Thursday in May, beginning 05/07/2020, SEGD will host a virtual meeting via Zoom where graduating design students will meet SEGD professionals for candid portfolio reviews and career advice—something vitally absent from our community at this moment. "Creative people are resilient problem solvers" says SEGD Director of Education Hilary Jay. "When Covid-19 struc

  12. Chat: From Lisa Hammershaimb : a sprinkling of synch From Dirk Dallas : Dennis how long is that open studio time usually? From Dennis Cheatham : Dirk, I offer 3 hours per week, each at a different time of day to compensate for time zones and work schedules. From robinlanda : Conversely, chat allows shy students to participate during synchronous sessions. From Dirk Dallas : That’s great thanks!

  14. Thanks to Heather Quinn at DePaul University for sharing this post about different strategies for teaching without hogging all the bandwidth! Videoconferencing Alternatives: How Low-Bandwidth Teaching Will Save Us All By Daniel StanfordMarch 16, 2020Read time: 7 minutes When we try to replicate classroom experiences in an online environment, it’s easy to think of video conferencing as our go-to tool for all sorts of learning objectives—and for good reason. Most of us have participated in a video conference at work or had a video chat with friends or family at some point. We
  15. Lisa Hammershaimb is a Design Incubation 2019 fellow doing her doctorate in online learning. She has shared some blog post she wrote recently: My doctorate is in distance education/online learning and my dissertation is on this topic. Here are four blog posts I wrote for the AACE review as well as an article about decentralizing the design studio. They are all pretty approachable/not too long so I hope they will be good resources for the community.

The resources are very relevant for design educators. Access can be requested via this Google Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdjwkKjPQLGpLwd7ZlT3AN9h0e0EVPsbVRSi71HlfKNZX8eQg/viewform
  17. Hi there! I’m based in Hong Kong and, one week before the start of the semester, our university told us to convert our subjects to online for at least the first five weeks of the 13-week semester. We were hoping to (after a 2-week recess period that was scheduled after the first five weeks of the semester) return to face-to-face teaching for the remaining eight weeks of the semester, but we have just been informed that we have to continue with online teaching until further notice. This is quite impossible for some subjects, as you can imagine. But we’re trying our best. It has been tou
  18. With the possibility that we might all be teaching remotely in the coming weeks, what have been some tools, resources, techniques, tricks that you have used as a design instructor when developing a class and course taught online or from remote locations? Are there things that did and did not work? What is the process and best practices for creating a video tutorial? What are the tools, equipment and software that work best? Please share your experiences here, so we may begin to prepare for what seems like the inevitable suspension of in-person classes.
  19. In conjunction with a CAA session on design history pedagogy that Victoria Pass and I co-chaired this week in Chicago, I have created a website called Design History Teaching Resources that I'm hoping can become a helpful resource for people teaching in the field of design history. I have started adding content, but it is based only on what I have in my own experience, and I would like to invite submissions from anyone on the DSF list who has useful content they are willing to contribute. If you have a successful syllabus, assignment brief, or activity prompt you are willing to share with coll
