IIDA and host sponsor Milliken invited twenty practitioners, education leaders and students to participate in the third annual IIDA Educators Roundtable, an invigorating, engaging, and enlightening set of discussions about the future of design education and its impact on the profession. This year’s theme, “Empowering Design”, provided an in-depth dialogue about the knowledge, experience, and tools required to enable the next generation of designers to succeed.

Nearly every issue we discussed are areas we are either currently engaging and employing in the College, or goals through our strategic planning. As I described our thoughts and actions toward design education here at Nebraska, a chorus of resounding affirmation and the desire to learn more about our programs permeated the room!

Recently, I was asked to identify what I see as the main strengths of the Architecture Program in the College of Architecture. We, of course, have many strengths, but there are some that stand out and make us distinct from other architecture programs in the Midwest and beyond. Based on input from fellow faculty and personal observations since my arrival in July, those strengths are as follows:

1. Design integration at all levels of the pre-professional and professional programs:
Through the act of design, our students learn how to integrate an array of disciplinary and technical knowledge and skills. This integration addresses a diverse range of topics, from sustainability, structures and computation, to art and architectural history and theories, and is explored though a variety of means at different scales and complexities, from furniture and exhibitions to interiors, buildings, cities and regions.

Tau Sigma Delta
The Tau Sigma Delta ASK help desk exists to help students realize their designs. ASK has assembled a panel of tutors who have skills ranging from digital modeling to presentation ability. The new ASK Help Desk format will directly match a volunteer tutor to a student in need of help. Tutors and students will set up a time and place to meet that is convenient for both.
For more information about the ASK Help Desk and the subjects it covers, please see the attached poster. If you need help from the ASK help desk, please email your question to:
