The 15th Annual Symposium on Communication
Sr. Curator of Contemporary Design
Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum
Director of the Graphic Design Program at
Maryland Institute College of Art
Through Design, we will explore ways to bring more creative thinking and problem solving into our classrooms. We'll try to answer questions, such as:
>> How Might We Revitalize Our Teaching Through Design Practices?
>> How Can We Help Our Students Design In Response To Their Readers, Users and Clients?
For the past 15 years, this day-long event has brought together
leaders in business and education to explore how to help undergraduates
and beginning professionals grow into strategic, thoughtful
communicators and creators. This year’s Symposium will focus on the
methodology of “design thinking” and its application to an educational
context. Design thinking is characterized by real-world problem
solving, collaboration, research, and the expectation that many ideas
must be generated, discarded or reworked to meet the needs of an end
user or particular audience.
Baruch College President Mitchel Wallerstein will kick off the Symposium with opening remarks.
Curator of Contemporary Design at Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design
Museum in New York City, will deliver the keynote address. Other
speakers will include Manuel Lima, Founder of visualcomplexity.com and author of Book of Trees: Visualizing Branches of Knowledge; and the co-founding team of Tools at Schools, Rinat Aruh, Don Buckley, and Johan Liden.
