EVENT - Redesigning (Graphic) Design Education

Redesigning (Graphic) Design Education
University of Derby, Markeaton Street, Derby
14 March 2012
This workshop is one of the HEA’s Higher Education Discipline Workshop and Seminar Series. The broad focus is student engagement and the enhancement of the learning experience through collaborative and participatory curriculum design.

Contemporary (graphic) design practice is attempting to reformulate itself in the face of changing conditions and a rapidly shifting communication landscape. At the same time Higher Education in the UK is undergoing a transformational change that will have a significant impact on student expectations and institutional demands. In the face of these challenges there has never been a better time to ask: ‘How should graphic design education respond and reshape in order to be relevant in the 21st century?’
