Marcos Esterman

Our presenter for this session of Teachers on Teaching is Marcos Esterman, Associate Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering. He teaches in the Multi-Disciplinary Design, the Manufacturing and Management Leadership, and the Masters in Product Development programs. Dr. Esterman reports to the Provost on faculty retention issues for underrepresented populations. Prior to joining the RIT faculty, he held a variety of positions in manufacturing and R&D while concurrently conducting his PhD research at Stanford University.

Flipped classrooms, collaborative- and problem-based learning, active learning, student response systems, online and blended learning, inclusive and social-impact teaching and learning…you get the picture. There are many teaching strategies and pedagogies to choose from, but how does one navigate them? I will come clean up-front and state that I cannot answer this in any formulaic way. However, I can share my own personal journey on how I have tried out, rejected, and/or adapted many of them to create learning environments that benefited my students. In particular, I teach a team- and project-based course that is focused on the systematic process to define an engineering product that adds value to the world. The main focus is on reducing ambiguity and uncertainty in product definition, which has proven an ideal setting in which to experiment with and evaluate the impact of pedagogical choices.

Jo De Baerdemaeker will present his in-depth research regarding the origin, development, and typographical use of typefaces for the Tibetan writing system and how the Tibetan script evolved from woodblock to pixel. In addition to an introduction to Tibetan script characteristics, the chronological evolution of Tibetan type designs and typographic techniques, Jo will provide a rare insight into the motives behind the manufacturing of multiscript printing types at established polyglot printing houses.

Jo is an independent Belgian typeface designer and researcher. He holds an MA and a PhD from the University of Reading, UK. His interests are designing, researching and writing about world script typefaces (particularly on Tibetan, Lantsa, Mongolian and Javanese) and multilingual typography. He is a regular speaker at international conferences, and curates exhibitions centered on type and typography. He currently teaches at LUCA School of Arts in Ghent. He is the author of "Tibetan Typeforms" the first, and so far the only, book exploring in-depth Tibetan type and typography.

In the decades after World War II, designers in the United States faced an existential dilemma as they participated in a professional landscape transformed by the regulatory forces of corporate culture, systems thinking, and computerization. What happens to the designer as a creative individual with the rise of tools, programs, and policies that aimed to manage the visual environment? Drawing on materials in the Cary’s Lester Beall, Will Burtin, and Paul Rand collections, this talk will consider the motivations, principles, and implications of the mid-twentieth-century effort to standardize design practice. I argue that by transforming design into a visual system—complete with graphic standards, operating procedures, and usage restrictions—postwar designers defined creativity in design not only as the conception of new forms or ideas, but also (perhaps even primarily) as the controlled combination of existing parts.

Robert Gordon-Fogelson is a PhD candidate in the Department of Art History at the University of Southern California and a recipient of the Visual Studies Graduate Certificate. He works on twentieth-century design, architecture, and material culture with a focus on relationships between design and business, discourse and practice, and production and distribution. His dissertation, “Total Integration: Design, Business, and Society in the United States, 1935–1985”, examines the centrality of “integration” as a concept to mid-twentieth-century design.
