  2. 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
  3. Artist as Activist Funding from the The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artist as Activist provides game-changing resources to artists of all disciplines– including visual and performing arts, new media, design, and other creative professions–who address important global challenges through their creative practice. The program is comprised of three distinct grant opportunities: Individual fellowships to U.S.-based artists and art collectives with a demonstrated commitment to applying their creative work toward a social or political actio
  4. The Wolfsonian's Fellowships Since its inception in 1995, our fellowship program has supported projects from a wide range of academic fields to promote scholarly research on The Wolfsonian's collection. Fellowships are awarded for full-time research at the museum, generally for periods of 3–4 weeks. Fellows receive: A stipend Accommodations Round-trip travel The program is open to holders of master's or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and others with a significant record of professional achievement in r
  5. A couple of the 2018 Design Incubation Fellows reported using Zotero to keep track of their notes, correct cite and reference other sources and to generally help them organize writing projects. I'm a bit old school having developed a relatively inefficient system before platforms like Zotero were born but I want to give it a try for my next writing Please add to this post with any other resources that might help design writers be more efficient. Zotero is a free, open-source research tool that helps you collect, organize, and analyze research and share it in a variety of ways. Zoter
  6. Hey Ladies and Guys who support your female colleagues, this fellowship seems super interesting and its a whopping $150k! Its only for Junior Faculty so send the info along to your favorite junior faculty asap. The J&J WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program will help develop female leaders and support innovation in the STEM2D disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing, Design) by funding six women at critical points in their research careers through a Scholar’s Award.

  8. A few years ago I had the dubious distinction of being the only tenured faculty at a round table about tenure and promotion run by Aaron Ganci from Herron School of Art and Design, Indiana University. Out of the 8 or 10 people at the table only 2 reported every "hearing" about a design faculty receiving good mentoring. Fortunately this group doesn't represent all faculty and there are many wonderful senior faculty out there who spend countless hours mentoring junior faculty. Still it is a bit of luck of the draw. And some junior faculty are clearly adrift as they make their way through the te
  9. That's a great point about target and positioning. Sometimes an author might have a vision and be able to engage with an audience via a funding source like kick-starter and successfully self-publish a book. The differences in how institutions view self-publishing (and publishing in general) are super interesting and seem very varied. Self-publishing would be looked down on at my own institution but if one could show impact (sales figures, citations, references in other media etc.), that would be counted. There seems to be quite a bit of diversity in how publishing and more specifically se
  10. Self-publishing has really come into its own. In the past self-publishing has sometimes gotten a bad name because of lack of editorial oversight and not all P&T committees will count self-published writing for tenure. But lulu, blurb, and amazon and other print-on-demand services mean that anyone can get their ideas out to readers. In my experience, self-publishing is ideal for topics and writing that are unusual and/or not immediately relatable to traditional publishers. I've published a few books but always traditional channels where they've been accepted through the editorial proce
  11. Have you ever wondered where to publish design writing? We put together the a list of publishers, academic journals and some trade magazines for the Design Incubation Fellows and wanted to share it out. The journals on the list aren't ranked so some might be better than others for tenure and promotion. The good news is that if your work gets accepted, there are so many venues you could publish in a different journal every month for a couple years! Please help grow the list by posting suggestions for new additions. 2017_Journals_Publishers.pdf Art, Design and Communication in Hi
