Support Design Education

Continuum and the Rotman School of Management have a nice video on why businesses should support design education in schools. Roger Martin (right) is dean of the Rotman School of Management in Toronto and appears in the video along with several others providing an understanding of the importance of design thinking for everyone.

Continuum created this video to bring to people's attention the growing importance of design thinking in business, and to advocate for a corresponding evolution in design education. They collaborated with others in the design and academic worlds who are part of this movement. The video was shot at the Rotman School in Toronto and at Continuum's studio in Boston, with contributions from author Dan Pink and academic Jeffrey Huang. The video touches upon the current state of design education, its challenges—and the possibilities for its future.
