Interior Design Educator Amy Roehl on Project Connect DP&E

The Project Connect DP&E website, www.projectconnectdpe.org, houses short web-based videos of design professionals talking about what it is like to work in the field. The mission of Project Connect DP&E, “working to connect design practice with education,” is to connect design students to design practice through web-based video. We particularly aim to reach university-level Interior Design students as well as high school students and career changers considering Interior Design as a profession.

“In the most competitive job market to-date it is critical for students to be well informed about the industry they are entering into. With ever-increasing costs of higher education, today’s student wants to know how what they are learning in school relates to their future professional success. The time and information that professionals participating in this project have shared is invaluable and has made a significant impact on our next generation of designers.”  Read the full article on the IIDA Professional blog, DesignMatters, here.
