Focus on Pedagogy 2022
Creativity, Uncertainty and Social Responsibility in Education
S. Webber (Moderator) et al.
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm


A keynote panel discussion responding to the theme of ‘Creativity, Uncertainty and Social Responsibility in Educations’ set by Florida State University, USA:

As society becomes more integrated on a global scale humanity’s problems are becoming more complex making innovation more valuable than ever before. Multidisciplinary collaboration increases the likelihood of innovation as experts share ideas and information with one another to solve our complex problems. Students have traditionally been educated and trained in silos where they gain expertise in their field of study, but they are not exposed to multidisciplinary practices of communication and collaboration. This panel will address the following questions:

  1. How are students prepared to practice in a world that demands multidisciplinary practice to solve complex problems? Is it effective?
  2. What are the most challenging barriers to multidisciplinary collaboration in practice, education, and leadership? How has the hybrid work/education model of the pandemic impacted this issue?
  3. What have we learned that will impact the future of multidisciplinary education and practice? How might technology be both an asset and a hindrance moving forward?
  4. What must educators do now to prepare their students for the future?

The individuals on this panel represent academia and practice, research and application, in the disciplines of experiential & graphic design, urban planning, landscape architecture, architecture, and interior design. They will discuss the needs of practice and the response of education in preparing future practitioners by looking at the past, present, and future of multidisciplinary design in context with evolving technology and the influences of the 2020-2021 Pandemic.


Steven Webber (Moderator) is an Associate Professor at Florida State University and Director of Graduate Studies in the Interior Architecture & Design Department. His areas of instruction focus on design studios and construction documentation at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research areas include emotional intelligence, empathy quotient and systemizing quotient, design pedagogy, and trends in practice. His book Interior Design Fundamentals was published by Fairchild Books in 2020. He also serves as the Director of Teaching on the Board of Directors with the Interior Design Educators Council. Prior to becoming a professor, he spent 12 years in full-time architecture and design practice near Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Julie Maggos (Panelist) is Principal and Senior Director Experiential Design @ Interior Architects IA. Julie helps organizations communicate within their environments to convey their messages, share their story, and engage their visitors and employees. She is responsible for defining their desired experience, planning and executing visual design solutions appropriate for the context. She is passionate about mentoring and growing the next generation of designers and has spoken at events for CoreNet, IIDEX, SEGD, and NeoCon.

Tim Chapin (Panelist) is Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy and a Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at Florida State University. Prior to his appointment as dean after a national search in 2017, he served a six-year term as Chair of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, two years as Associate Dean for Development for the college, and one year as Interim Dean from May 2016 to May 2017.  Chapin holds a B.A. in Sociology from Emory University, a Master’s in City and Regional Planning from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in Urban Design and Planning from the University of Washington.

Meghan Mick (Panelist) is an Assistant Professor at Florida State University with a diverse background in design practice, a registered Landscape Architect, and LEED and WELL accredited professional. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, she worked in graphic design and advertising. Her interest in natural science and love of design led her to graduate school at the College of Design at NC State University for a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture. She worked in practice (landscape architecture, exhibit design, graphic design) for over 15 years with a focus on connecting people to nature and place through design. Meghan is also an advocate for equitable access and exposure to nature for the benefit of human and planetary health. She believes that public spaces have an important role to play in the human relationship with nature.

Terry Londy (Panelist) is an Assistant Professor at Florida State University. She is a Detroit maker with commercial experience in Graphic & Interior Design, with a specialty in the role of Brand in the built environment. Terry posits that the key to great design is understanding that the Brand is much more than a logo, but is more of a living, breathing entity. It becomes an icon that drives consumers to buy & creates die hard loyalty. The design challenge is creating the intersection with the user and the Brand, storytelling, developing the experience, and ultimately building the connection they make to the space. Recently leaving practice for academia, he now seeks to develop and invest in students. His approach to the classroom setting is like a commercial design studio, infusing the value of team building and interaction, as well as demonstrating the value of fostering client relationships and how to build them.
