Robin Vande Zande is an associate professor of art education at Kent State University. Her research area and publications include topics such as teaching sustainable design; design education and brain-based principles; the design process of problem-solving; and teaching aesthetics through everyday objects. She has been a guest speaker at national and state events, speaking on the advantages of teaching design in PreK-12 settings as it relates to social responsibility and the economy. Her book, Teaching About Everyday Things: How to Teach Design to K-12 Students, is forthcoming.

Dr. Vande Zande is chair of the Design Issues Group of the National Art Education Association and a member of the Education Committee of the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. She has been a consultant for the Frank Lloyd Wright Wescott House Museum, Springfield, Ohio, and the Design Lab Early College High School, a design-based Cleveland Public School. She is a staunch advocate of preK-12 design education, which has lead to her interest in co-founding DESIGN-ED to promote the implementation of policies that require design instruction and licensure for educators to teach design in preK-12 schools.
