One big thing for me is the divergence of design/tech from theory, especially as it relates to communication and research.
Another topic I considered was a discussion of how design/tech professors can serve/instigate interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary courses and projects.
A third idea is an interest in how we teach the history of theatre design to our young designers, and why we (or why we don't) prioritize it in our curriculums.
Finally, in keeping with the conference's focus, we could assemble a discussion about how protest/resistance theatre in its physical form affects designers (found space, the likelihood of last minute changes, destruction of materials, etc)
What do you think? I'm leaning toward the first and last, but have substantial interest in the others too!
