Guglielmo Marconi University hosted the XIII International GUIDE Conference in Rome on May 3rd and 4th 2018. The conference welcomed universities coming from all over the globe including Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Germany, Guatemala, India, Italy, Poland, Spain and the U.S.A. The two-day conference featured 26 Academic Presentations educating the 60 participants on the Fourth Industrial Revolution by addressing topics such as the new pedagogical approaches developing in the digital era, as well as Educational Robotics and Educational strategies for smart manufacturing. Amongst the notable speakers there were Dr. Aditi Pathak, from UNESCO MGIEP, Dr. Vito Borelli, from the European Commission, Dr. Igor Danilov and Arturo Lavalle, International Relation, Research and Development Coordinator at GMU. The focus of the conference was centered around the impact of new technologies on educational strategies, on professional skills and competences, and on the development of new jobs in the 4TH Industrial Revolution. In addition, the speakers stressed the growing importance of virtual labs as immersive tools for long-distance education, including gamification, as the means of making the learning experience more challenging and stimulating. The event was characterized by longitudinal research projects based on strong visual examples, case studies and hands-on experiences, rather than on conceptual knowledge, allowing a greater comprehension and exchange between the academic and the professional spheres. The conference concluded with a progressive statement on the Internationalization of Higher Education that sees the launch of a virtual mobility initiative involving the members of GUIDE and the educational institutions who wish to participate.

XIII International GUIDE Conference

Strategic planning and management skills combined with creativity, unconventional forms and solutions provide students the tools to harmonize desires and images with essential practical needs. The new Master in Interior Design – available in English language – combines three fundamental elements including design, entrepreneurship and “the made in Italy”. The concept behind the implementation of these characteristics relies on the notion that a sure path to success for a ‘contemporary interior designer’ should integrate design with both managerial skills and entrepreneurial competences. In this realm of multidisciplinary learning, students also have the opportunity to come to Rome and explore the unique Italian design heritage, integrating knowledge with fundamental practical experiences. The program’s core courses focus on Foundations for Interior Design, Design Techniques, Architectural Management, Design & Entrepreneurship, Specialist training - Design Direction and Venture Lab. The innovative operational blended format allows graduated students, entrepreneurs and professional, to work and study contemporarily, tailoring the individual necessities to the latest market trends and needs.
