A roundtable discussion with designers and educators. This month’s topic is design education.

Join us for a roundtable discussion focusing on the landscape of EGD/XGD education, and what current students need to be prepared for as they emerge into professional practice. Justin Molloy, SEGD Director of Education and Professional Development will lead a dialogue on what the shift in education means to practice and how SEGD is developing an expanded platform to prepare future and current designers for this evolution.

Design practitioners, educators, students, fabricators, and makers are invited to join in this insightful dialogue and how the community can support and be involved in this opportunity. We’ll discuss and consider the following points:

What are the new opportunities that exist for designers?
Why it is critical for educators and practitioners to be aware of these changes?
What will the typical EGD/XGD projects of the future will involve and look like?
How to integrate EGD/XGD core competencies into courses and curriculum?
What are the skills that practitioners are seeking now and what else should they look for?
What does the profile of a future EGD/XGD designer look like?
How can practitioners get involved in and support design education?

Space is limited. RSVP through Eventbright.
