Fresh Ed: Panel

This year Fresh Ed asks whether one still needs a degree in graphic design to become a professional designer. Our 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. We will examine what competencies design programs should teach and what role non-degree granting institutions play in the continuing education of 21st century designers. Educators, students and industry professionals are invited to join the conversation and explore the varied modes of content delivery and the theoretical underpinnings informing design education today.

Barry and Ganci continued their writing projects with the support of Design Incubation’s Fellowship Director, Aaris Sherin, to craft these articles.
