Compendium Deadline Just Around the Corner

Time is running out to submit projects to Projects for Teaching Scene Design: A Compendium Volume 2.

Submit examples of creative, innovative projects that have been effective in design classrooms for the second volume. Projects can explore any of the skills taught in scene design courses including research and conceptualization, analysis, graphic skills, design heritage, and collaboration. New twists on conventional teaching practices or techniques are also welcome.

Projects can be submitted online and will be selected for inclusion by a panel of editors based on clear outcomes or learning objectives, uniqueness, and creativity. Final submissions will be accepted on March 1. There will also be a section of old favorites from the first volume and a makeover section of how those projects from the first volume have grown and morphed over the years to meet the changing needs of the students.

The final product is intended to be available both as a hard copy in a three-ring binder at the USITT Bookstore at the Conference and as a print on demand/downloadable option throughout the year.

Additional questions can be directed to the panel of editors (Tammy Honesty, Gion DeFrancesco, and Brian Ruggaber) at usittscenicdesigncompendium@gmail.com.
