Rebekah Ison Radtke (Assistant Professor, University of Kentucky School of Interiors; M.Arch, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2011) focuses on opportunities where collaborative learning and community engaged design processes intersect. Professor Radtke continues to build relationships and create connections between the design profession and the university to create community impact by undertaking research and teaching about learning spaces, technology integration, and creativity in the design process as a means for community engagement. Rebekah has collaborated on preservation works in rural China, design build projects in the villages of Brazil, community activated art interventions in Appalachia and education based design in Lexington, KY which have been funded through national funding entities. These experiences seek to create better environments by building strong communities through collaborations in the university, state, and global environment.
