Faculty Development Program

Justuju was a program for faculty development which aimed to promote a culture of critical research based practice in Communication Design education. Building upon the theme of Research by Practice, the program included workshops, lectures and seminars conducted by academics from Pakistan and USA through remote means.

Participating faculty from partnering institutes were able to engage critically with the concept of Research by Practice – Praxis and critical pedagogies while examining and exploring their own practice with regards to potential for critical research. Activities included elective seminars, lectures, presentations, activities, short assignments and sharing of resources. Through these activities participants gained theoretical and technical knowledge while engaging in interactive sessions led by trainers and experts from USA and Pakistan and paving the way for cross-institutional dialogue with peers from various design departments and industry experts.
