Inclusion and Access: Graphic Design Skills for the 21st Century by Jennie Grimard
Research Project Next Steps
In September 2020, I plan to assemble a team of design educators in Ontario to leverage their expertise and explore how we can infuse accessibility and inclusion in our classroom activities and assessments.
Through a series of surveys and interviews, I aim to establish a faculty guide with example teaching activities to make inclusive design a core skill for emerging designers. I’m also planning a co-design workshop with graphic design students at Humber College in 2021 to evaluate and iterate on the learning activities.
The goal of the research is to develop consistent, effective teaching activities and robust assessments throughout the graphic design curriculums in Ontario. Fostering a more inclusive approach to solving design problems through both technical skills, inclusive ideation processes and multi-sensory outputs.
Thank you for taking the time to review my exhibit and get familiar with my research project.
