Call for Papers: 2016 IDSA/Eastman Innovation Lab Education Symposium
"It always seems impossible until it's done"—a challenge posed by Nelson Mandela that we will take on during the 2016 IDSA/Eastman Innovation Lab Education Symposium on August 17 in Detroit. Submit your education paper to Making Things Happen in Design Education, which will kick off the 2016 IDSA International Conference, chaired by Sooshin Choi, IDSA.
The provost and vice president for academic affairs at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit notes, "Designers are driven to make things happen. They begin with dreaming and bring the dream to reality, even when others don't have faith. We are the hand that introduces the future to the present, all while striving to benefit people, community and industry. As industrial designers, we play a critical role in advancing the satisfaction of life through experiences, social innovations and enjoyable services."
Design educators solve problems with optimism and creativity—and pave the way to making things happen in education. So what is your story; your case study; your vision of making things happen? Share your journey with the design community!
The IDSA/Eastman Innovation Lab Education Symposium is open to design educators and thought leaders in fields ranging from design school curricula to K-12; from corporate education to educating the general public.
Please review the criteria for the paper review process.
Full papers will be submitted. This is to help ensure the papers are of the highest quality. A Symposium Proceeding (made up of 1-page executive summaries of the full papers) will be published and distributed at the IDSA Education Symposium and at the IDSA International Conference.
