Making Design Problems Real in the Classroom
How do we bring real world problems to the classroom to enrich the student experience? In this episode, Sam is joined by Principal Design Strategist and Health Suite Labs Engagement Lead at Philips, Matt Templeton, to learn how design students can interact with real problems in the classroom. Matt has incorporated his own lessons as a professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Later on in the show, Sam and Matt interview the President of ArtCenter College of Design, Lorne Buchman. Together, they discuss how to bring industry in for sponsored projects, how students confront social dilemmas in their work, and the value of interpersonal connections in design education.
