Program Director Phillip Simon discusses adapting to change.Interactive Media Masters Program Director Phillip Simon analyzes how adaptable, inquisitive students can survive and stay engaged in the constantly shifting technology landscape, even a decade from now. This article is adapted from a conversation with an ICM prospective student who asked where technology will be in ten years and how will the program adapt.In 10 years, I’d say all technology is going to be different. Let’s face it, it just is.In the interactive media graduate program at Quinnipiac University we try to teach fundamental concepts, which you can carry through after graduation.  From a visual design point of view, for instance: how we read and look at letters, text and type isn’t going to change in 10 years.  We are not going to develop a new alphabet.  We’re not going to evolve a new way of seeing that allows us to read a very wide scan line or look at tiny, tiny, tiny text. So things about typography, the fundamentals, aren’t going to change.
