The Digital Design and Fabrication Learning Community is a group of faculty and staff exploring the use of computer aided design (CAD) and digital design software applications used for teaching and design, visualization, and fabrication. The group was initially called Generative Design and was focused solely on the use of Rhino3D and Grasshopper3D prior to the 2020 and had primarily been composed of Fine Arts and Applied Design Faculty and Staff. Beginning in 2022 We have expanded the focus to include multiple applications and forms of output related to Digital Design and Fabrication and Representations and are open to Faculty and Staff interested in teaching with these tools throughout campus.

The participants have selected the following meeting schedule for Spring 2022. Jan 14, Feb 11, Mar 18, Apr 8 and May 13 from 3:30 to 5pm. However, this may change based on a variety of factors.


  • Develop skill in teaching with digital design and fabrication software applications.
  • Exchange ideas with other faculty and staff to expand our collective skill-set.
  • Disseminate knowledge and practice within our campus community and more public opportunities such as gallery presentations.


  • Willingness to share ideas and listen to others ideas.
  • Have a self identified interest in using digital design and fabrication technologies for teaching and learning.
