Spring 2016 Design Educators Conference Call for Submissions & Abstract Readers

Nuts & Bolts, a national AIGA Design Education conference for emerging and established design educators, administrators, students, and designers will strip away the mystique of academia and help build a solid foundational knowledge of discipline-specific teaching methods.

Envision emerging and seasoned educators engaging in faculty mentoring and collaboration through direct conversation, with workshops, panels and sessions designed to help move careers, and the field of the design teaching profession, forward.

Through a series of group discussions, workshops, lectures, speakers and learning sessions, opportunities for open dialogue will be facilitated. Participants will be encouraged to share their challenges and achievements with others, uncover our educational shortcomings, identify our responsibilities, and offer pathways to solutions, all for the greater good of design and the global community.
