CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
We invite design educators and grad students to submit topics and perspectives related to the human factor of design — from empathetic practice, social innovation and human-centered research methods, to designing for humanity and a more inclusive and sustainable world.
Presentations will be PechaKucha style, 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each. They can be speculative in nature; they could document a research project, detail a case study of an innovative course project, present proposals for new educational models or discuss the social impact that design has on humanity.
Submission deadline: October 30th
