Connecting Dots Welcome Party


March 14 + 15, 2014
Cincinnati, Ohio

Design educators are challenged with identifying what constitutes appropriate and effective research. They must bring this knowledge to the classroom with the assurance it will serve students well in their practice. Currently, most educators’ methods are replete with intuition and anecdote. How might we reach a position that is academically sound and professionally valuable when put into action? Connecting Dots explores the ideas, ideals, and practices of design educators and professionals as they together investigate research.

On March 14 and 15, 2014, join fellow design faculty, students, and professionals in Cincinnati, Ohio, to hear noted speakers and panels, roundtable discussions and other learning activities. Conference conclusions will be published with proposed research directions for communication design.
