One of IIID's major concerns has always been information design education.
Within the EU/US Cooperation Program in Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training IIID initiated and completed the project "Development of International Core Competencies and Student and Faculty Exchange in Information Design (idX)". The final document is available for free in the IIID Public Library: Information Design – What information designers know and can do.
IIID maintains a worldwide register of information design courses. It was established as a resource and a platform for teaching institutions committed to developing and promoting information design.
