How can we solve the Design Education challenges of today in a practical/applicable/direct way? Join the discussion at Valencia Design Education Forum 2020(virtually)
This question among other discussions on design and design education is the focus of this year’s Valencia Design Education Forum 2020( #VDEF2020 ), organised on 5-6 November 2020, by the team of the New Art School, Glug Valencia and EASDV. Originally planned to take place in Valencia, due to COVID19, the event is going to be held virtually, via Zoom.
This year’s event, following the success of last year’s Alicante Design Education Forum 2019(ADEF19), brings specialists from all over the world, to share their teaching experience and their similarities and differences in teaching Art and Design at an international level, while rediscovering the common language of visual communication, and proposing creative, direct and applicable solutions to the many challenges that affect design education today.
The mission of the VDEF2020 is to bring together industry, lecturers and students to discover new ways of working together, forging curriculum that is more appropriate for this time. VDEF2020 is a practitioner’s conference that seeks solutions that are immediately applicable for the betterment of Art and Design Education as a whole.
The theme of this year’s forum is Analogue+Digital.
“I wish for everybody, for professors who are spending their days at their universities, just never lose the optimism, always to bridge young people with daily life, to enhance their knowledge, to broaden horizons and at the same time, continue doing this very important job.”
“Pay attention to what your inside real needs are. This takes time. Find what really, really interests you today without fear, without any hesitation. And after you give yourself this time to find out everything is much easier because you are ready to sacrifice time and hard work and everything.”
One of the big issues we always have now in design courses is have you built in enough risk into the projects? have you built in the fact that if a project fails, there is a very valid learning experience within that failure? have you built that in? Or is it the case that you don’t get the credits, the weighting, etc, etc.
The Alicante Design Education Forum 2019 was designed and organised by designer/lecturer Lefteris Heretakis and co-organised by Glug events London and EASDA, the School of Art and Design Of Design of Alicante, an educational centre belonging to the Instituto Superior de Enseñanzas Artísticas (ISEACV) that offers qualified official education preparing trained professionals to face the challenges demanded by our society in the various fields of design and plastic arts and that academically offers the Higher Design degrees and the Professional Teachings of Art and Design.
