About this video


Our panel discuss the challenges, barriers and opportunities that have arisen out of the need to transition education to a fully online format. The third in a series that aims to help educators connect, share and thrive off each other in the design and education space. This series offers tips, dialogue, critical thought and a sense of community around design education.Each webinar will tackle a different topic in design academia.

This panel covers:
- Hackathons, charrettes, design jams, they are all popular, executed and exist in the college experience: How do we feel about them? Are they beneficial? In the college environment, should we deliver less, challenge more? What balance of facilitation vs delivery should we be aiming for?
- What produces the most talented and effective designers?
- How can we tailor the education space to attend to a variety of learners.
