Beyond the Allure of the Digital – research in the learning and teaching of design
The DRS/CUMULUS/DESIGN-ED conference
June 27th – June 30th 2017. Ravensbourne, London UK
Conference website: http://lxd2017.london/
Call for papers now open - https://www.conftool.net/lxd2017/
This conference brings together researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of higher education design settings with the intention of connecting emergent models and ideas around the digital, with the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The Conference will be held in London at Ravensbourne on the Greenwich Peninsula. This conference will bring together researchers and practitioners with an international reach and from a wide variety of education design settings with the intention of connecting emergent models and ideas around the digital, with the scholarship of teaching and learning.
A New Discussion Platform for Design Research
Design Research Failures is a permanent platform for addressing failure in design research, asking in what way design research has failed, in order to anticipate and co-create the future of the design discipline.
The site invites visitors to submit their own answer to the central question (“In what way has Design Research failed in the last 50 years?”) as well as comment on all the existing contributions.
As with the exhibition at Design Research Society 2016 conference, the hope is that the site will very much be alive, with new contributions and comments continuously being added. The commenting is deliberately left open, in the sense that visitors can debate the stated failures as well as put forward solutions if they wish.

Design is becoming more strategic, both in the private and the public sector. There is a wider range of interfacing activities with internal and external clients and collaborators than before and there is also a wider spread of disciplines to productively interact with. New methods and technologies for collaboration and interfacing have come up. China has been the centre of manufacturing for quite some years. Now it has become a leader in the development of internet services and the most important market in the world in many categories. In this new landscape, the roles and responsibilities of designers are changing dramatically, both in Asia and in the rest of the world.
The Design Management Academy invites an international community of scholars to formulate areas of explorations and academic contribution which are outlined by the following 7 meta themes, within the 19 tracks around which the conference is organised:
1. New Models of Innovation
(a) The Interplay between Science, Technology and Design
(b) Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Trends in Open Innovation
(c) From R&D to D&R: Challenging the Design Innovation Landscape
(d) Design Creating Value at Intersections
2. Product-Service Systems
(a) Capturing Value and Scalability in Product-Service System Design
(b) Future: Service Design for Business Innovation for Industry 4.0
3. Policy Making
(a) Creative Intersection of Policies and Design Management
4. Intersecting Perspectives
(a) Changing Design Practices: How We Design, What We Design, and Who Designs?
(b) Challenges and Obstacles to the Enactment of an Outside-In Perspective: The Case of Design
(c) At the Intersection Social Innovation and Philosophy
(a) Design Practices for Effective Strategic Design
(b) Markets and Design: Vertical and Horizontal Product Differentiation
(c) Foresight by Design: Dealing with Uncertainty in Design Innovation
(d) Contemporary Brand Design
(a) Building New Capabilities in an Organization: A Research Methodology Perspective
(b) Exploring Design Management Learning: Innovate with ´User’ Oriented Design and KM Perspectives
(c) Design Teams in the Pursuit of Innovation
(d) Designing the Designers: Future of Design Education
