International Faculty exchange is a priority for FCAD and has been greatly encouraged by the Dean for all those looking to explore the opportunity. The School of Graphic Communications Management (GCM) and Hochschule der Medien (HdM), in Stuttgart, Germany participated in FCAD’s new faculty exchange program. Our exchange of thought leaders saw Dr. Rich Adams (GCM) teach in the Fall, while Dr. Thomas Hoffman-Walbeck (HdM) is teaching this Winter.
With both schools equally matched in state-of-the-art facilities and known for their leadership in the print industry, their relationship has included a number of student exchanges over the years.
This new exchange program saw Dr. Rich Adam teach Premedia, Practicum in Print, Web Design, and eBooks during his semester in Germany. While the second half of the faculty exchange, has Prof. Dr. Thomas Hoffmann-Walbeck teaching a new course called Workflow in the Graphic Arts. Thomas has four sections of the 3-hour lab and is co-instructing with contract lecturer Nicola Kidd (GCM ’08).
