Event Description:
The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute
The 15th Annual Symposium on Communication
Thinking Through Design
Ellen Lupton
Sr. Curator of Contemporary Design
Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum
Director of the Graphic Design Program at
Maryland Institute College of Art

In Thinking 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.

Ellen Lupton, 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 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.
