Way to go! Anthony Wood, Shillington’s Global Managing Director is featured as an Educator to Watch 2018 by Graphic Design USA (GDUSA).
How do you balance the teaching of fundamentals versus the need to respond to our fast-changing world of media, technology and culture?
As educators, it’s vital to remember that regardless of our crazy, fast-changing world — design is unquestionably rooted in problem-solving. And it always will be. Even as new apps, tools and software updates are being released faster than RuPaul changes outfits.
By applying keen research skills, design thinking and always relying on the fundamentals, students will be able to create clever solutions for any media or technology. At the end of the day, we need to teach designers who are adaptable and inspired by change and challenges.
At Shillington, we know both students and teachers are always learning. We aren’t precious or elitist.
Our curriculum is developed by a small, agile team of practising designers and it’s constantly evolving with one mission in mind – teaching relevant industry skills to give our graduates the best possible chance of employment.
