TEACHING AWARD NOMINATION
for Michael Wiemeyer
(Creative Director at Designlounge)
Michael has received the honor of a nomination for the Distinguished Teaching Award 2017–2018 at The New School, Parsons School of Design. Faculty members are nominated by their students and colleagues as Distinguished University Teachers, and who embody the highest standards for teaching and advancing The New School’s mission and vision to inspire critical engagement with ideas and the world.
This year Michael was part of a group of 42 candidates out of over 2,000 teachers at the university. Parsons—just named the best art and design school in the country in 2018—is an extraordinary place of creative and inquisitive learning and over the last 14 years Michael has met and taught so many incredible and talented students that have continuously inspired him to become a better teacher. He can’t be happier to be part of the school’s part-time faculty community as Assistant Professor teaching typography in the Communications Design program. And this is true for him: You learn the most when you teach. To all his students and colleagues, thank you so much.
