The Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) recently announced a new award that celebrates innovative teaching and program-related practices that advance the cause of excellence in interior design education.
The Innovative Interior Design Education Award competition is open to faculty members and collaborating teams at CIDA-accredited interior design programs. Awards of up to $3,000 are available to winning entries. CIDA also intends to widely publicize winning entries.
The CIDA board of directors believes the Innovative Interior Design Education Award is an important step toward further recognizing methods that lead the way in educational innovation. CIDA's goal with the award is to support and join the wide variety of efforts underway throughout higher education and the professional organizations to collect and share information about creative practices that advance interior design education.
Innovative Interior Design Education Award submissions are due in the CIDA office no later than September 15, 2010. Award winners will be notified in January 2011. More information about this competition can be found at www.accredit-id.org/innovative.pdf.
