Bio

Douglas Seidler is the Director of Marymount’s School of Design and Art and Professor of Interior Design. He has over 17 years of teaching experience, including teaching interior design at the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University and at the Boston Architectural College. While pursuing his graduate degree in architecture, he taught architecture at the University of Florida and the Preservation Institute: Nantucket.

Seidler teaches an expansive curriculum of graduate and undergraduate design courses including Foundation Studio, Senior Capstone, Lighting, Building Technology, Computer Drafting, AutoCAD, Revit, and Construction Documents.

Seidler’s academic research focuses on the application of pedagogical research in design education. He writes about complex software like Revit and AutoCAD by limiting instruction to the most relevant topics. This instruction creates strong connections to prior knowledge, architectural graphic standards, the design studio, and the design profession. He has published three textbooks with Fairchild Books and presented at national conferences on design education.

Seidler is an NCIDQ Certificate holder, a LEED Accredited Professional for New Construction and Existing Buildings, and a professional member of ASID and IIDA.
