The ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee is excited to announce the expansion of their educator-focused “In Good Company” offerings. “In Good Company” began as an in-person event during the annual SIGGRAPH conference and featured speakers from various organizations giving presentations (not sales pitches) directed toward educators, including ideas for classroom use of specialized software, tips, tutorials, and other use cases. After a successful launch, the Education Committee began conversations about expanding to a year-round program of virtual offerings which was further necessitated by the move to a virtual conference format. The new series under the “In Good Company” umbrella features recorded conversations with authors and educators of note, available online and throughout the year. For the launch, we are honored to have the opportunity to present an interview with this year’s Distinguished Educator, Barbara Mones! (Watch the session below.)
“In Good Company” is brought to you by the Education Committee, which works to support educators in computer graphics and interactive techniques. The Education Committee undertakes a broad range of projects and activities in support of the computer graphics and interactive techniques education community, such as developing curriculum guidelines, providing instructional resources, and organizing SIGGRAPH conference-related activities and outreach.
