Professor Jon Freach in The Atlantic: Sciences, Humanities, and … Design? The Case for a Third Pillar of Education
AC4D Professor Jon Freach was recently published in The Atlantic. In a short piece titled Sciences, Humanities, and … Design? The Case for a Third Pillar of Education, Jon describes some of his experiences teaching at AC4D:
But the problematic part was that they were students at a design school. We actively recruit and accept those without deep design backgrounds because of the other skills and experience they bring to our program like business, science, engineering, education, social work, or simply their intellectual curiosity and adeptness. We do this with full confidence that we can leverage our own design training to help them along. The expectation at our school is that students won’t be creating just beautiful objects; they’ll create beautifully smart and socially impactful ones.
