The IDEC Innovative Teaching Ideas initiative provides opportunities for educators to find inspiration and integrate new methodologies and content in their teaching. Innovative Teaching Ideas are examples of Interior Design projects, assignments or other planned learning activities, developed and facilitated by an Interior Design educator that advance creativity and effectiveness in teaching and learning in Interior Design. This initiative also offers educators the opportunity to share their teaching ideas in a peer-reviewed process that may be supportive of tenure and promotion.
The Innovative Teaching Ideas Collections are housed in our Resource Library. The first Innovative Teaching Ideas, developed in 1992, have been reformatted and are now available online as part of the Legacy ITI Collection.
