Earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) at Dwell on Design

By Dwell @dwell
Dwell on Design will offer more classes this year that qualify for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the trade than ever before. To this end, we’ve entered into partnerships with a diverse group, including American Institute of Architects/Los Angeles (AIA/LA), American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), US Green Building Council (USGBC), and many others. The course schedule allows learners to earn units in short, succinct sessions, with plenty of time to stay connected to the show—courses will take place in classrooms overlooking the showroom floor as well as onstage.

Dwell on Design partners ASLA and APLD each host a class on landscape design—California Dreamin’: Successful Collaborations Between Architects and Landscape Architects (presented by landscape architect Mia Lehrer) and Beautifully Landscaped: Inside and Out (with Pamela Berstler and Laura Morton), respectively. Additional “green” offerings include (but certainly aren’t limited to) LEED Platinum on a Budget: Tactics from 100K House (for USGBC credit, presented by Chad Ludeman, as seen on dwell.com), Obviously Manifesting Green (OMG): The Future of Sustainable Design (ASID, IIDA), and One Year On: The Green Idea House (GBCI/USGBC).

Several courses have very focused topics, like Designing Small Smart Spaces, presented by Trevor Kruse, principal at Hudson Kruse Design, and hosted by Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), which will address the specific challenges when designing a small space. Feng Shui for the Home or Office, eligible for IIDA credit, includes a personal feng shui consult from instructor Lori Tierney. The two-part Designing for the New Affluents/The New Face of Affluence, both for ASID credits, is Dwell’s “continuing study of emerging trends, shifting attitudes, and changing purchase behaviors” of clients with bigger budgets, and will be offered on both Saturday, June 22 (onstage) and Sunday, June 23 (in a classroom).

Courses for AIA credit include Surfacing Solutions: Understanding the Material World, Building Information Modeling for Interior Design, and Behind Good Restaurant Design with AIA/LA’s Restaurant Design Awards Finalists, the latter program taking place onstage Friday, June 21.

ASID-accredited sessions focusing on finances, client relationships, and social media will appeal to a wide range of designers. Finance 101 for Designers will share “effective tools for managing the monetary side of your new business,” and The Value Proposition: Knowing Your Value and Setting Your Fee will discuss “methodologies for determining interior design fees.” Can We All Just Get Along? The Designer-Client Relationship (with local ASID designers Delta Wright and Mark Enos) and Evidence-Based Residential Design concentrate on the importance of the designer-client relationship. Also offered are Managing Social Media for the Designer, and New Business Models: Social Media and Beyond.
