UCDA Design Education Summit: Good Design Works

 
UCDA Design Education Summit: Good Design Works


Design educators and graduate students—join your colleagues in the 13th annual UCDA Design Education Summit: Good Design Works. This national summit for design educators, chairs, and students, continues an ongoing community created specifically for graphic design educators with many opportunities for professional participation and development.

Good Design Works seeks to spotlight all aspects of purpose-driven graphic and interactive design that are having an influential, positive impact on the world. The ability of the designer to create meaningful social change through visual communications that celebrate, criticize, educate, or advocate—begins in the classroom.

Included in the summit are keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops, and paper and poster presentations selected from abstracts submitted through a peer reviewed process. UCDA is famous for providing professional development in a relaxed atmosphere. The faculty will share ideas and welcome your participation in an ongoing dialogue about the critical issues facing the design education community.

This two day summit is open to UCDA members and non-members, design educators and practitioners, and students.

The McDonough Museum of Art, on the campus of Youngstown State University, is at the center of the UCDA Design Education Summit activity by offering space for the keynote speaker(s), presentation space, exhibition space, and more. Over the course of the summit, the McDonough Museum of Art will be home to the keynote presentation(s), UCDA academic poster exhibition, Good Design Works: City of You exhibition, and the DesignEdu.Today live podcast recording sessions with Gary Rozanc. Courtesy of the McDonough Museum of Art, academics with accepted poster abstracts will receive one free copy of their poster to take home.
