Monday, November 5, 2012 - 2:12pm

John Craft (tec) was an invited speaker for the 42nd International Circle for Institutes of Graphic Arts Education, Technology, and Printing Management in Moscow, Russia on October 18—23, 2010. His paper titled, “Globalized Graphic Communications Curriculum” addressed the need for developing an internationalized curricular study concerned with the emergence of an internationalized print and digital media industry. Companies such as R. R. Donnelley based in the United States have locations around the world. Recommendations included the use of enhanced technology to prepare students to “think globally” in the United States toward international opportunities. 

Over 120 graphics educators from various locations of the world attended the conference. The Russian printing industry provided funding for meals and lodging for participants. Conference participants toured the campus of the Moscow State University of Printing Arts. Celebrations for the University’s 80th Anniversary occurred on the third day of the conference. On the fourth day, participants were given a tour of Moscow, including Red Square, and St. Basil’s Cathedral.
