New Approaches to Improving Graphic Design Education

The creative and ill-structured nature of graphic design tasks creates difficulty in terms of assessment validity and reliability. Further, best practices in teaching and assessment are hampered by issues around scalability and efficiency. Finally, increasingly validated indications that good design(s) may be a function of a group consensus rather than the opinions of a few extensively trained individuals, have all led to an increased emphasis on researching new approaches to improving graphic design education.

Using data to drive decisions - field map

Drs. Bartholomew & McGraw and Mr. Charlesworth hypothesize that some of the struggles with data-driven decision-making instruction stem from the lack of context and real-world application for students (Merrill, Custer, Daugherty, Westrick, & Zeng, 2009). Further, they believe that placing students in positions requiring data-driven decision approaches may increase the effectiveness of these experiences and foster student interest in pursuing related education and careers.
