DESIGN-THINKING LEARNING CHALLENGES

The intended outcomes of the challenges include:

2) instructional best-practice methods that lead to a positive impact on student learning, the DIG Community, as well as within NAEA members at large; and
3) alignment of challenge objectives and learning targets with the National Visual Arts Standards (NVAS).
