Shrinking budgets, rising course sizes, technology integration, preparing students to be “twenty-first century designers.”
Let’s be honest…being a design educator is difficult work.
That said, in the face of an increasingly chaotic higher ed reality, the Pixels + Tweed Project is ruthlessly optimistic. Because we believe as educators we are all threads woven within the narrative of graphic design, we are committed to researching ways online learning can not only be used to replicate the learning dynamics of face-to-face studios but also teach new literacies so students can navigate and ultimately thrive in an increasingly interconnected design world.
Though the patterns may be complicated, we are all well designed and well suited to find creative solutions, empowering students so that their lives too can be woven into the larger graphic design narrative.
Join us as together we explore all that is possible, weaving our well-designed threads into the design education story.
