Each year, SEGD partners with an academic institution in the annual conference’s host city to hold a gathering of design academics, students and researchers. A forum for trends in design education research, projects and curriculum innovation, the 2017 SEGD Academic Summitwill be held at Florida International University's Miami Beach Urban Design Studios on June 7.
“It's imperative for any design educator to stay ahead of trends impacting practice,” says SEGD Education Director Justin Molloy. “Design has become so embedded into business today—whether through cities, technology startups or brands—that it is critical for students (and faculty) to realize that the design world they think they know has become so much more fluid, boundary-less and ripe with opportunities than previous generations ever imagined.”
Sessions at this year’s Academic Summit will focus on social impact, new models and trends in experiential graphic design (XGD). Attendees will also hear about user-centered XGD and creating place. Download the complete agenda.
