Trope Collaborative
Starting Point
Integrative Teaching International (ITI) focuses on increasing pedagogical skills of emerging educators at first year art + design foundations. ThinkTank is a yearly event to bring together master and emerging educators to focus on a thematic issue and develop options and policies to consider to strengthen content and teaching.

Exploration
As raw content began to build over several ThinkTanks, it was decided to develop a journal to package a wide variety of curated content through facilitated discussions. Trope worked with authors and facilitators to conceptually package seemingly disparate content into a unified form through strong use of typography, images and color.

Solution
ITI decided to take a hybrid approach and develop an electronic journal that can be printed on demand by recipients. Adobe Acrobat PDF technology that can be programmed with javascript and electronic bookmarks was used to develop a file that can be electronically distributed internationally and avoid traditional printing and mailing costs.
