Fall 2016 Region One Conference
University of Wisconsin-Stout, Menomonie, WI
A Graphics Educator Symposium was held Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22 at University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

The symposium “How to Thrive in an Era of Change” engaged teachers and industry representatives in discussions about topics critical for graphics educators:

  • trends that are shaping the industry and what they mean for our programs
  • technologies that we need to understand
  • strategies to keep our curriculum relevant
  • methods to identify local or regional partners and ways to build relationships with them
  • techniques to market and promote our program for future growth

Attendees had opportunities to share what has worked well for them, and to expand their professional network through interaction with presenters, industry representatives, host educators, and fellow graphics educators. Teachers from a variety of graphics-related disciplines (Communication Technology, Graphic Communications, Web Design, Art, Graphic Design, Photography, Business, Marketing, and Yearbook advisors) participated. This variety provided insight from a number of perspectives on every topic.

Thanks to hosts:
