The International Design Education Alliance for Schools (IDEAS) will launch 2020 Vision: The Decade of Design Education for Schools, 2010-2020 at the IDEAS Forum to be held at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, April 13, 2010.
The IDEAS Forum will include a round table by the National Design Policy Initiative and a presentation by William Moggridge, Director of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
The IDEAS Forum will develop strategies to make Design Education part of regular instruction in schools taught by qualified teachers during this decade. They will look at Design Education Policies that will need to be in place; Teacher Preparation that will need to be developed: and Student Support that will encourage students to study design education in schools.
The IDEAS Forum is open to everyone and those who can't attend are still encouraged to become part of the decade long initiative. Contact Robin Vande Zande at firstname.lastname@example.org or Martin Rayala at Rayala@Kutztown.edu for more information.
