ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
This year's conference theme is "Integration Through Design." It is the core belief of the DESIGN-ED coalition that teaching design creates a bridge across all curricular areas, making connections for authentic learning to occur. The "Integration Through Design" theme will serve to reinforce this position and act as a lever for attendees who already agree with this philosophy or are curious as to how they can achieve greater cross-curricular success in their classrooms and schools.
DESIGN-ED is a collaboration of PreK-12 teachers, schools, administrators, universities, designers, organizations, businesses, museums, institutions, individuals, and others supporting design education initiatives in K-12 schools.
We support all disciplines of design education in PreK-12 schools and teacher education programs. The purpose of the DESIGN-ED coalition is to develop policies of support for design education at the international, national, state, and local school district levels.Hamilton Hall
