Students Talk Innovation @ 20:20 Vision

16 June 2014

Edinburgh College hosts its first post-merger Staff Conference today at its Sighthill Campus.  The event, 20:20 Vision : Innovation for the Future, features a full programme of workshops, seminars and talks across all the disciplines and departments within the college.  The aim is to explore new ideas in innovation and development that will support educators, administrators and management to keep the institution at the forefront of modern education in Scotland. The conference is organised around six key themes:

1) Technology Innovation
2) Teaching Innovation
3) Student Innovation
4) Sustainability
5) Workplace of the Future
6) Outward Innovation

Our HND Graphic Design students will actually be delivering a session at the conference, under the Teaching Innovation theme -  'Innovative teaching: a student’s perspective'.

The students will be presenting their experiences of our SQA award-winning employer engagement strategy, which saw our HNC and HND groups working on two ground-breaking 'One Week' agency projects, with high profile clients SAMH and Cutty Sark, and a variety of experienced industry professionals from some of Edinburgh's top design agencies.
