Any design educators here?

over 9 years ago from , Interaction / Product Designer @ GE

Hi everyone, I am currently in a Masters Education program at SAIC. My undergrad was in Design. As much as I love design, I love working with the youth more. I'm wondering if there are any other designers here working with youth??

Check out my website, has education related work and some designs. http://www.alexfloresdesigns.com/

    I taught web design for two years for a for-profit university, and I'm currently teaching a course on WordPress for Mediabistro. None of the teaching has really been for youth though; if anything, I've been the youngest person in all my classes.

    I work at Adobe, developing learning games. Not only for youth, but also for adults. http://projectnimb.us

    Aside from being a designer, I also teach art & design at high school level but I don't market myself as an educator much - until I want to change course to do tenure track at higher-ed level, which I'm preparing myself for.

    I recently taught a design workshop with a group of high school students. This was for the program She++ Include at Stanford. http://sheplusplus.stanford.edu/

    We covered the process of needsfinding. Going though a rough outline of the Stanford d.school process of empathy to define to ideate.

    I've also co-instructed full day UX workshops with Girl Develop It (organization for women in tech) as well as work full time doing design at a startup. Definitely looking into teaching more workshops for the k-12 range though.

    I work for the University of California, Riverside as an Visual/UI Designer. One of my latest work can be seen here http://international.ucr.edu/

    I'm still in the process of updating my portfolio but here's a sneak-peak - http://designbyjohnny.com/
