Fresh Ed: Panel

Friday, June 9 / 9:30-11:00AM

The Fresh Ed Panel will discuss whether one still needs a degree in graphic design to become a professional designer. The panelists will consider whether degree programs adequately prepare students for an ever changing industry which includes user interface design, creating content for social media, VR and other emerging platforms. The panel will examine what design programs should teach and what role non-degree granting institutions play in the continuing education of 21st century designers.

The panel includes –
Mark Addision Smith: Assistant Professor, Art Department, The City College of New York
Keetra Dixon: Assistant Professor, Rhode Island School of Design
Tyler Hartrich: UXDI Lead Instructor, General Assembly
Lara Penin: Phd Director Transdisciplinary Design Graduate Program, Parsons School of Design

Hosted by Joe Marianek, and E Roon Kang , co-moderated by Aaris Sherin and David Frisco.
