I am honored to present my work and vision for Design for Social Good to AIGA Cleveland. During this virtual event, I propose for four frameworks for considering this: as personal inquiry, as validating artifact, as firebrand, and as creative process. More about this virtual event is here.
Dr. Mandy Bratton, Katrina Boyd, and I will outline a process by which institutions may systematically and strategically design a social innovation education model at the International Social Innovation Research Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We will use UC San Diego’s establishment of the Changemaker Institute as a case study.
Dr. Cheryl Fogle-Hatch, Robin Marquis and I will be discussing “Strategies for incorporating anti-ableism into design curricula” at the 2021 SEGD (Society for Experiential Graphic Design) Academic Summit on June 9. Post event update: Our paper is published here and the video recording of our presentation is available here.
On April 23, 2021 I’ll be giving a lightning talk entitled “Accessibility and inclusion: A case for valuing duplication over exclusivity,” co-authored with Dr. Cheryl Fogle-Hatch.

The event is focused on tackling “the complexity of the problems we seek to address through design research in order to create a better future.” I hope to see you there! Post event update: […]

Complicated. Futile. There are many descriptions we might use to describe the process of finding funding for a design education project. As designer educators, we can […]
On March 6 2018 at 4pm I’ll be holding a talk called “More than a pretty picture: The potential for art and design to create positive social change.” The world is filled with seemingly endless conflict and deeply rooted problems. Positive change can seem out of reach. However, art and design have both the potential […]
I’ll be presenting about how to incorporate assessment into social justice curriculum at the College Art Association 105th Annual Conference in New York, NY.
