Lecture in Argentina: Teaching Design in Canada and the Inclusion of Design for Sustainability in Undergraduate Programs

On May 3, with the support of the Centre for the Arts and Communication of Macewan University, I had the honor of visiting the National University of La Plata (UNLP), invited by the Visual Communication Design Department of UNLP, as part of the celebration of its 50th anniversary.

I brought a lecture about my experience teaching design in Canada for the last 5 years. I also introduced the subject “Design for Sustainability” to an undergraduate audience, sharing a slide-show with materials from a variety of design classes in UofA and Macewan. More than 500 people attended the lecture, among students, professors, colleagues and academic representatives. The experience is a first step for establishing a bilateral link between design schools, and it is a great opportunity for future collaborations and academic exchange.
