IDE Academy under new coordination

News - 18 March 2021 - Communication

The IDE Academy is a series of one-day workshops, held on Wednesdays. Every master student participates in at least 14 workshops during his or her master study, and can choose from a broad range of options, covering a kaleidoscope of themes. In addition to members of the faculty, we often have external experts as workshop facilitators, including an impressive number of alumni.

Starting this semester, the coordination of the IDE Academy falls to a new team. Charlotte Kobus and Erik Tempelman have taken over from Ehsan Baha, who has accepted a position outside TU Delft. Ianus Keller, who coordinated the early years of the Academy, is involved to ensure a smooth transition.

Together, this trio also represents the three departments, and by extension, our three master programmes. Ianus is expecting to transfer his coordinating role in September to a suitable candidate from the Department of Human-Centered Design and Design for Interaction master course.

We thank Ehsan (soon be found at the University of Montreal) for his coordination over the last year. Despite the corona crisis, the Academy held firm! Ehsan’s input lives on in the form of concrete tools & methods for helping students develop their own identity as designers – also the topic of his dissertation, which he expects to defend later this year. The Academy looks forward to his return as external expert in one of our workshops.
