As more young people around the world seek careers in design, schools are reimagining their programs to consider sustainable futures for their graduates. This panel of educators and designers addresses the evolving nature of contemporary design education, the options available for students, from craft to engineering, and the ways students are obtaining knowledge on their own terms.

Join a panel of educators and designers including Paula Wallace, SCAD president and founder; Carolina Garcia Jayaram, principal, CGJ Consulting; Sabine Marcelis, designer; and Ruki Neuhold-Ravikumar, director of education at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, as they address the evolving nature of contemporary design education.

Topics covered during this discussion include options available for students — from craft to engineering — and the ways in which students are obtaining knowledge on their own terms.
