  2. 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 business dept, select the options that are important to you... One thing that was brought up in the CAA conference session was the double-standard, higher bar which we must go through, as compared to other disciplines. It is not enough for us to secure a project from a major company, we need to also win an award. She pointed out, as I have always argued, that the vetting process a client does of us is peer review. And payment for our work is a grant. What also frustrates me is that everything we do is always considered "Service", because our skills and expertise falls within a service industry and field of study. Only if we then win an award, is it suddenly scholarly.

  4. 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! From Naoko Masuda : Dennis what are some good platforms that can be used for asynchronous critique? From Dennis Cheatham : (…One hour at a time…) From Mitch Goldstein : I use Dropbox Paper From Alex Girard : Me too! From Alex Girard : Love Dropbox Paper! From Mitch Goldstein : OMG ALEX ARE WE BFF NOW From Alex Girard : For realz. From Naoko Masuda : THANKS! From Mitch Goldstein : score From Dennis Cheatham : Noko, our institution uses Canvas LMS so I use that… but tons of tools could be used for asynchronous discussions. From Dirk Dallas : I’m experimenting with Figma for critiques since it has the collaboration and pinned comment feature From Naoko Masuda : We’re being asked to use Moodle/Teams so looking for things that can work within that. From Silas Munro : I like the idea of dropbox paper, but dropbox is blocked in china. I know many of my students have access to a VPN, but I wonder about some platforms that don’t work in china From angelariechers : anyone using Are.na for asynchronous crit? From Dennis Cheatham : Good call, Silas… not all countries allow al tools. +1! From robinlanda : I’m using Google Classroom to teach GD and AD and I’m able to hold an almost identical experience synchronistically From Naoko Masuda : Thank you everyone! Super helpful! From Aaris Sherin : Dan is using Collaborate in BB to break students up into groups. My institutions doesn’t have that feature but it seems like a great way to connect with students in real From Katherine Mueller : Wow! Amazing! From Mitch Goldstein : huge thanks to DI for putting this together! From Celi Monroe : I included “Documentation” in the rubric for online projects. If it’s blurry or poorly lit, they know that will affect the grade. From Katherine Mueller : I was already using Flickr in the classroom. Asking them to post their progress to the group before each class. I set expectations for commenting participation From Dirk Dallas : Celi, great point! From Lupe Muñoz Dentice : Hello everyone! I’m from Asunción, Paraguay. I’m using Google Classroom, Moodle (institutional requirement) and Zoom. From Dennis Cheatham : Katherine, good call on seeing expectations for commenting participation. Online, it From Mitch Goldstein : HARD AGREE WITH ALEX From Dennis Cheatham : …it’s important to set clear expectations for number of comments and quality of comments (both praise and critical comments) From Lisa Hammershaimb : Much easier to remember when there is a trace of it From Dirk Dallas : Are there any *free* online tools for critiquing and pinning comments on videos for motion design projects? From Lisa Hammershaimb : @dirk have you checked out voice thread? I think Aaris has used that before with video crit From Dirk Dallas : I will look into that thank you Lisa! From Celi Monroe : Great point, Alex. All those questions “do we have to ?” questions that naturally come up in-person have to be considered ahead of time and communicated clearly. From Celi Monroe : Sorry, *Dennis. From Abby Goldstein : Excellent thanks From robinlanda : I include the learning outcomes in the design brief as well as how I will evaluate the solution. From Dennis Cheatham : Right, robin! Outcomes and evaluation measures up-front… at the start. +1! From robinlanda : From robinlanda : Agreed! From robinlanda : Due to the emergency situation, we want to lead with empathy and create a flexible environment for them.

From Abby Goldstein : Alex —Can you give an example From Alex Girard : I’d be happy to! What can I give you an example of? Wasn’t monitoring this while I was speaking. From Katherine Mueller : Thanks, Aaris. I’m very interested in rubrics From Celi Monroe : If it’s in the instructions, it’s in the rubric. It makes grading easier for me and reinforces what’s important. But I try not to get too granular because students will start working to the rubric (“I’m not going to worry about this because it’s only worth 3pts”) From Dirk Dallas : Dennis, would love to hear more about how the risk points work From Dan Wong : https://social.designincubation.com/topic/252-teaching-online-resources-experiences-tools-recommendations/ From Celi Monroe : Is anyone using Slack for classes?

I can share more… From Celi Monroe : Awesome. Would love to learn more, Dennis. From Abby Goldstein : Lisa yes THANK YOU! From robinlanda : Google From Dennis Cheatham : Dirk, I’d be happy to share about risk bonus. Get in touch with me dennis.cheatham@miamioh.edu From Dirk Dallas : @Celi I use Slack for posting homework, doing weekly writing reflections, and posting work/doing critiques From Abby Goldstein : Great point Lisa From Dan Wong : If people would like to share videos on YouTube, or would like us to add their videos to our channel, please let us know!

From walterk : How are people handling students that do not have access to computers - or were reliant on computer labs at your institution? Or handling students that have limited internet access that are now abroad internationally? From Dan Wong : CUNY has paused classes for a few days so they can distribute computers… From Silas Munro : Otis is also providing laptops and free licenses of software From walterk : Good to know! From Aaris Sherin : To all - please add questions you have or what you might be interested in in terms of DI Developing more programing / content in the future into the chat here so we can review later! Thanks! From Dan Wong : Adobe is apparently extending Creative Cloud licenses for off campus use. There were some glitches… but they’re working them out. From Abby Goldstein : Question for DI: Teaching design off the computer From Eugene Mayer : Dan—Can you provide more information on the Adobe situation. Software is the biggest problem for one/third of my students now that they are off-campus. From lizdeluna : Yeah, I haven’t seen it come through yet, but I understand that it just needs to go through the institutions IT, but all students should get free Adobe CC From tracy : I’ve been recommending the Affinity apps, also free for 90 days and very similar to Adobe interface. From Dan Wong : https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-enables-distance-learning-globally-schools-impacted-covid-19/ From Justin Gagne : https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/supporting-the-creative-community/ — 90-Day free trial; alternatives to Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign From Katherine Mueller : Agreed!

From lizdeluna : Snag It From lizdeluna : https://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.html From Dirk Dallas : @Eugene one recommendation is to try the free web based tool Figma From Carrie Hamilton : If a student already has an Adobe CC account, they can get two free months by going to the Adobe site, clicking on the chat window and typing “too expensive” in the window From Abby Goldstein : It is good to be challenged —how can you design without software? From Dennis Cheatham : Demo… one of my feedback videos using Snagit: https://youtu.be/9iqoEcGd69o From tracy : My challenge is for students who only have cell phones and limited data or internet access. I have not found good apps to use in that scenario. From tracy : Alex, I am the only Graphic Design instructor at my college. From Abby Goldstein : Yes for over 20 years I was the only full time faculty in design at Fordham. We just hired an AIR Patrica Belen From Abby Goldstein : SOOOO true Aaris From Abby Goldstein : THANK for arranging this.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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 colleagues, I hope you will send it in. Also if there are other structures, sections, or ways of organizing that would make this effort more useful to you, please feel free to suggest them. Many thanks for your help in building this shared resource! www.designhistoryteachingresources.org

Please visit the website at http://www.sd.polyu.edu.hk for more information about the School. The Design discipline at the School takes a sustainable and humanistic approach which also aims to expand the scope of traditional design into the sociotechnical realms. The three conceptual pillars constitute: (a) Design Social - collaborative design with communities and the public sectors to improve living conditions through critical, systemic and participatory approaches; (b) Design Economies - entrepreneurial design that enhances service innovation and value creation in the private sector; and (c) Design Making - human-centered and hands-on design investigations in labs and with communities, in the practices of making and prototyping via socio-technical means. They are identified as the three flagship themes to consolidate the research focus and emerging pedagogies in the School. The School is looking for candidates who will work in a transdisciplinary design environment that builds on the School’s global position within the regional and Chinese context (e.g. the Greater Bay Area).
