We’re delighted to announce that David Carroll will join the full-time faculty team in the upcoming spring 2014 semester. He will be teaching two courses in the area of Art, Media, and Technology – a core studio on Interaction Design and an extremely timely elective called Surveillance Design.

As Associate Professor of Media Design, and former director of the MFA Design and Technology graduate program at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City (2010-2013), David Carroll’s teaching and research explores how an art and design studio practice intersects with new technologies, evolving media ecologies, the media industry, public policy, education and pedagogy. NYC Media Lab, Pearson Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Education, and Nokia Research Center have funded his research. Prior to his academic career, he served industry clients including AOL, A&E, CNN, ESPN, FOX, HBO, PBS, Random House, Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, Sony, Time Inc., Warner Bros and others. Professor Carroll earned his MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design in 2000 and his BA in Art History and Religion from Bowdoin College in 1997.
