Event Details

MONDAY, February 18: Sandy Speicher, "Design for Learning"

Education, just like any other sector, has many diverse challenges—all of which might be addressed by design. From creating new solutions for the classroom, to radically re-thinking entire education systems, Sandy Speicher will share examples of recent work from IDEO and discuss some of the ways this multidisciplinary design firm has been evolving its design process for the unique context of education. Speicher will also discuss the issues that arise as designers expand their influence into the public and social sectors.
 
Sandy Speicher leads Education practice at the global design firm IDEO. She has collaborated with the Gates Foundation to develop strategies to engage parents in national topics of education, partnered with Innova Schools to develop an affordable, high-quality school model for Peru, and helped Carnegie Corporation launch 100k in 10—a designed response to President Obama’s call to action to get 100,000 more STEM teachers into the classrooms in the next 10 years—a new model for social change, as President Clinton has termed it. Speicher's teams have also worked on tangible design solutions for classrooms, including the Node Chair for Steelcase, a tablet-based learning platform for middle school students, and online learning platforms for higher education institutions.

We're pleased to announce details of the SVA MFA Design Criticism Spring 2013 Lecture Series, our ninth series to date. On Tuesday evenings at D-Crit we present lectures by the most thoughtful and provocative writers, editors, designers, and curators practicing today in the interrelated fields of design, architecture and urban planning. Come for the lectures and stay for a chance to mingle with the speakers, D-Crit faculty members, and students.

 

The Spring series is specially curated and hosted by D-Crit first-year students and reflects their interests and obsessions, which include soft waterfront infrastructure, satire as a critical strategy, game design as a component of urban planning, fashion photography, and longform journalism, among other topics. Join us at D-Crit this semester for lectures by Narratively editor-in-chief Noah Rosenberg; inventor and product designer Markus Kayser; landscape architect Susannah Drake; IDEO’s education director Sandy Speicher; networked-device innovator Kati London; The New Yorker photography critic Vince Aletti; author and columnist Virginia Postrel; and WNYC's "Studio 360" host Kurt Andersen.

 

Each lecture is followed by a lively Q&A session and refreshments in the D-Crit Reading Room. Lectures are free and open to the public but you do need to register to reserve your space.

The SVA MFA in Design Criticism is a pioneering two-year graduate program that trains students to research, analyze, and evaluate design and its social and environmental implications. Students study with some of the best design writers and thinkers of our time, including MoMA’s senior curator of Architecture and Design Paola Antonelli, Design Observer blogger Alexandra Lange, and New York Times critic Phil Patton. They learn how to curate an exhibition, produce a radio segment, launch a blog, edit a publication, host a lecture series, and stage a major conference. 

The School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City is an established leader and innovator in the education of artists. From its inception in 1947, the faculty has been comprised of professionals working in the arts and art-related fields. SVA provides an environment that nurtures creativity, inventiveness and experimentation, enabling students to develop a strong sense of identity and a clear direction of purpose.

On Tuesday evenings at D-Crit we present lectures by the most thoughtful and provocative writers, editors, designers, and curators practicing today in the interrelated fields of design, architecture and urban planning. Selected to supplement our curriculum with their original methods and alternative viewpoints, these speakers inspire and challenge our students. Our students, in turn, through the discussion they lead, help illuminate the concerns and priorities of design criticism today.
