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.
The mission of the DESIGN-ED coalition is:
to initiate the implementation of design education licensure at the appropriate governing levels;
to encourage PreK-12 design students and their teachers to become more aware of and ideally become active members of their communities through design; and
to foster worldwide partnerships with design, education, and business organizations to better support the efforts of PreK-12 design educators around the globe.
The DESIGN-ED coalition trustees are:
Robin Vande Zande
Associate Professor / Coordinator of Art Education at Kent State University
Computer Graphics and Design Teacher
