In 2012 Pearson Education released MyInteriorDesignKit and its companion text, authored by Kerrie Kelly, as an experiment in interactive learning. Rather than giving static facts and endless pages of text, users are introduced to the core topics of interior design through the real experiences of successful industry professionals. Learners are engaged and challenged by taking them on virtual field trips to many locations where the business of design happens. Videos are used to simulate decision making activities and encourage learners to think like designers. Kerrie’s work features interviews with Michael Graves, Joe Ruggiero, the Eames family and more.
