Studio Challenge

August 2022–June 2023
Open to all NAEA Design Interest Group (DIG) Members

The Studio Challenge is a year-long Professional Learning Community of learners and leaders exploring the visionary role of human-centered design in guiding participants in the creative problem-solving process of design thinking, an inventive process through which problems are identified, solutions produced, and the results evaluated.

SummerStudio: Design Thinking 2022 participants will be invited to apply to take part in this yearlong learning community. Earn money while you learn! Selected applicants will document their progress as they work through their challenges and will be paid to participate, research, practice, and publish their work as they design their solutions. They will study their own practices and ultimately publish a template for design practice or create a toolbox for teacher reference so that others might learn from their experiences. Those members who complete all of the year’s activities will receive compensation

Applications will be made available at the virtual SummerStudio: Design Thinking StudioChallenge Kickoff event on July 12, 2022. Participants unable to attend the kickoff event may request an application from Cindy Todd ( or Rande Blank ( after July 12, 2022.
