In celebration of this week’s theme for SEGD September, Education, we are sharing the video recordings of the 2022 SEGD Academic Summit. This annual event focuses on new developments in design research and education. 

The SEGD Academic Summit is a forum for trends in design education research, projects and curriculum innovation for design academics, students and researchers. This event is great for industry members as well to reconnect with the new ideas that are coming from researchers today.
