  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. "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

  5. 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

  7. I wish I could measure this. I honestly have no idea. Individuals in my department place different value in different deliverables. It's anyone's guess. On the university level, grants of any value are typically very highly regarded.

  8. I am at a research university (top 10 public), we have qualitative assessment so it's hard for me to put numbers on them – they all have to be contextualized. In general, though, I think they are from high to low here – but nothing is so low to merit no attention. I'd be interested in other ways of assessing. Maria Published Book (highly respected, fluctuates based on press and peer review process) but demonstrates a high level of research contribution to the field Grant Base Research Project (varies based on source, amount, role) Peer Review Publication (helps demonstrate

  9. University of Minnesota design scholarship matrix.pdf This matrix is a useful tool for considering the diverse approaches to scholarship that design faculty engage in. My department has design faculty that are designers, humanists, social scientists, artists and engineers. Besides graphic design, we have programs in interior design, product design and apparel design.
