Round-table 1: Theoretical production and its relationship with the local academic field.
In which way academicians and academic institutions deal with historical and theoretical research? What is the relationship between the theoretical production in typographic issues and design students and teachers at a local and regional level?

Roun-dtable 2: Between typography education and professional life
This roundtable will focus on what are the tools and preparation students have when they graduate. Are they prepared enough for professional life? Can they face real challenges? Is Type education well suited for the demands of the graphic communications industries?

Round-table 3: Access to digital fonts
This roundtable will deal with the amount, quality and kind of typefaces students have access to during their careers. What role do these fonts play in their education? What are the available licence models and what are the real academic needs? How does typographic resources relate with other tools and contents in Typography courses?

Registration to the Typographic education forum is free of charge, and we hope it will be the first of a long series of meetings in different cities of Argentina. This forum is endorsed by the Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI), the Seminario Interdisciplinario de Bibliología del Instituto de Investigaciones Bibliográficas de la UNAM (México), Tipos Latinos Argentina, Fundación Gutenberg and the Unión de Diseñadores Gráficos de Buenos Aires.
