Strohecker joins RISD leadership this month

Posted 8/12/13

PROVIDENCE – Dr. Carol Strohecker will join Rhode Island School of Design’s academic leadership team as vice provost for academic affairs at the end of August.

With her extensive work in art, design and media, industry, educational technology, and learning environments, she brings distinctive expertise and valuable experience to initiate and advance many significant strategic initiatives at RISD.

Most recently, Strohecker served as director of the University of North Carolina’s multicampus Center for Design Innovation. Before that, she was the principal investigator of the Everyday Learning Group and one of the first researchers at the MIT-affiliated Media Lab Europe, where she advised program development for the European Commission’s Directorates-General for Education and Culture and for Information Society and Media.

Emerging as a learning-environment designer specializing in interactive media, she became one of the first researchers at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories, where her collaborative work became the basis of four U.S. software patents.

She has taught at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Media Lab Europe and Learning Lab Denmark. •
