Workshop Project is the pedagogical design practice of Yasmin Khan and Jessica Wexler. It is a platform for investigating and proposing new forms and modalities of design education inside, outside and beyond the institution. We make the artifacts of academia (i.e. applications, symposia, curricula, lectures, presentations, workshops) as forms of critical writing that articulate our ideas about the future-present of design education and practice. Workshop Project also organizes symposia, workshops and other collaborations with colleagues and educational institutions.
Yasmin and Jessica are design educators and practitioners with over two decades of combined experience teaching, designing curricula and coordinating faculty within diverse public, private and for-profit institutions. Currently, Yasmin is a visiting senior lecturer at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and visiting faculty at California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, California. Formerly, an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Graphic Design department at Purchase College, State University of New York, Jessica is the incoming Chair of Undergraduate Communications Design at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York.
