Abstract
Designing Graphic Design History: Teaching for the 21st Century Classroom undertakes the development of a web-based Graphic Design History interactive timeline (GDHit), intended as a user-generated online database for potentially all graphic design enthusiasts, but specifically faculty and students within the traditional graphic design history course. GDHit seeks to continue the implementation of new media and emerging digital technologies in a traditional, lecture-oriented environment by inviting the user (or audience) to contribute the content for the timeline, while fostering new forms of course engagement for students in this digital age.

In keeping with the tenets of the digital age and its inherent spirit of cross-disciplinary collaboration, the author engaged two computer scientists over the thesis development period (academic year 2010-2011). They developed the framework for how content is entered into and filtered within the database, as well as aiding with technical aspects of the interactive timeline.
