The AIGA Design Educators Community (DEC) set aside time during the fall to collect data around the needs of design educators and better articulate the value proposition of the DEC. I co-chaired this important organization from 2013 -2015 and now work to advocate for design educators through my role on the AIGA Board of Directors

Below are select slides. The final presentation includes data design educator personas and pain points, as well as DEC initiatives to meet those identified needs. Many thanks to my awesome grad student, Alysa Buchanan, who volunteered her time to design the presentation. Download the full pdf here: AIGA_DEC_Educators
