  5. I am sharing out a presentation I gave at CAA in 2019 on a panel chaired by Dan Wong, please see the PDF posted here of the presentation deck! ++++ An investigative inquiry into graphic design industry research practices by Rebecca Tegtmeyer “Research” in its essence is the active process of gaining knowledge in order to understand. How research is practiced to gain this understanding differs across the field of visual communication, or more specifically in the area of graphic design. Past research practices in the field merely focused on the design of products or communications but needs of new complex problems have brought about the use of research methods focused on people first. Are these research methods adapted from other disciplines or unique to each scenario? How is academia influencing or not influencing this shift in methods in industry? By observing and interviewing four unique workplaces I identified the ways in which research methods align, connect, or cross industry practices and academic inquiry. The questions I sought to investigate were: > What practices are borrowed from other fields? > How does the end goal and outcome direct the research methods practiced? > In what ways are industry practices similar or different than academic practices? > How is research valued by those that conduct it and by the intended audience? > With the changing landscape of the field, what might possible future research practices CAA_Research Presentation_Tegtmeyer.pdf

  14. Motion Design Education Summit: MODE 2021 (re)connect 10 - 13 June 2021 DESCRIPTION Motion design is an ever-evolving discipline, spanning design and the arts. Live video streaming, gaming, and virtual environments have enabled us to connect with others during times of isolation and physical distancing. Our social interfaces, conferencing apps, and digital collaboration tools enable dynamic and interconnected exchanges across space, time, and continents. Motion encompasses every digital touchpoint on our devices, providing feedback and shaping understanding across complex ecosystems for human-computer interaction. It is a vital part of the interconnectedness of the human experience, but now more than ever before. Our central theme for 2021 is (re)connect and examines the impact of motion design and motion literacy in current contexts, and explores future notions. Motion design and motion-based technologies have played a monumental role as part of a universal pandemic shift. We’ll have some stories to tell. The 2021 conference will be virtual, but together we will explore three focus tracks: research, pedagogy and practice that seek to help us (re)connect. Particular interest includes papers and workshops that explore topics in diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, sustainability, social/political issues and responsible design practices. Motion outputs may include augmented reality, virtual reality, narrative, immersive and experience design, interface, gaming, tools and new types of motion design making. Discoveries involving remote teaching and learning that integrate motion as part of curriculum and pedagogy are also of interest. All submissions should have a strong relationship to motion design in order to be accepted to the conference and included in the 2021 proceedings. DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS 27 November 2020 SUBMISSIONS + GUIDELINES https://easychair.org/cfp/MODE2021 CONFERENCE CHAIRS R. Brian Stone, National University of Singapore Gretchen Caldwell Rinnert, Kent State University Andre Murnieks, Massey University Heather Shaw, Lesley University For more information visit: http://www.modesummit.com https://www.instagram.com/modesummit/ Interested in being a reader for MODE 2021? email heather.shaw@modesummit.com
