National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, INDIA is glad to announce the 2019 edition of the ‘International Open Elective’ to be offered from 21st January 2019 to 1st February 2019 at Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Gandhinagar campuses.
International Open Elective (IOE) is a two week long multi-disciplinary series of workshops, offered to the students of B.Des and M.Des along with exchange students from our MoU partner institutions.
A mutually agreed framework, content and methodology of each elective workshop will be announced to the NID students, who will then make their choices based on their interest.
The overarching theme for IOE 2019 is: “Gandhi & Design”:Celebrating the wisdom of wholeness. As we celebrate the 150th year of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s birth anniversary, NID dedicates the IOE 2019 for exploring Gandhian thoughts and its ideas of holistic development. The objective of this year’s theme is to understand how can “Gandhian Thought”, that connects with the thoughts of sustainable development show today’s world the path of inclusivity, sustainability and social harmony! To know more about the theme and tracks kindly visit “openelective.nid.edu“.
With ‘multidisciplinary learning’ as the main emphasis, we invite you to offer a challenging exploratory workshop to our student participants at NID for this year’s theme “Gandhi & Design” under one or more of its tracks.
Kindly submit your proposal for the workshop by filling in the ‘proposal submission form’ online before Monday, 24th September, 2018.
