ALT/SHIFT: Examining the future form of education for design and the creative industries
How can we connect with and inform emerging creative methodology? Do we need to be more accountable to the industries we serve? Do we have a wider social responsibility? How do we build better relationships with the tertiary & secondary sectors?
What are the priorities that will drive our pedagogy into the 21st Century?
Maverick or collaborator? Isolation or connection? Picture maker or problem solver? Authorship or co-creation? Minority or majority? Originality or interpretation? Artifact or experience? Craft or communication? Freedom or restriction? Inspiration or evidence? Clarity or intrigue? Academic or vocational? Niche or mainstream? Personal or Public?
