Education + Research Introduction

SEGD’s Education conferences, workshops, webinars, and courses span a wide swath of design practice areas including branded environments, exhibition and experience design, technology and interactive experiences, user experience, healthcare, practice and technical topics, wayfinding, accessibility, and the business of design.

The academic journal Communication + Place, the SEGD Annual, and White Papers (published on topics including accessibility and sustainability) also advance SEGD's educational mission. 

SEGD actively collaborates with and provides outreach to design programs at internationally recognized colleges and universities. Sample EGD course syllabi and curricula can be found on the EGD Course Curriculum page. Additional resources, including a listing of EGD/XGD Books and EGD Core Competencies to use when developing outcomes for EGD/XGD centric curricula, are available under the Academic Resources section of the Education + Research page.

SEGD’s signature academic education event is the annual SEGD Academic Summit, immediately preceding the SEGD Conference each June. Design educators from around the world are invited to submit papers for presentation at the Summit and publication in SEGD’s peer-reviewed Communication + Place, which is published electronically on an annual basis. The Summit and e-publication are platforms for academic researchers to disseminate their creative work, models for innovation in curriculum, and best practices for research related to experiential graphic design.
