Design is Everywhere: How to Take Design Education to the Next Level

PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding, books, and further subjects afield. Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Design Museum’s Design is Everywhere, hosted by Sam Aquillano and Liz Pawlak—a “podcast featuring stories of people and organizations using design to make an impact and change the world.”

The latest episode (No. 32): “Making Design Problems Real in the Classroom.

Here’s more from the Design is Everywhere team:

In this episode, Sam is joined by Principal Design Strategist and Health Suite Labs Engagement Lead at Philips, Matt Templeton, to learn how design students can interact with real problems in the classroom. Matt has incorporated his own lessons as a professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Later on in the show, Sam and Matt interview the president of ArtCenter College of Design, Lorne Buchman. Together, they discuss how to bring industry in for sponsored projects, how students confront social dilemmas in their work, and the value of interpersonal connections in design education.
