Aim: To continue the discussion around futures of design education.

The next Futures of Design Education Meetup will take place on 14 January 2021.

Two speaker sessions will present thought-provoking work and ideas on the topic of Futures of Design Education, leading to some great PedSIG discussion.

Speakers:

Keneilwe Munyai (@munyaik), Human-Centered Design Consultant, will discuss her work in developing & running design thinking training programs in Africa and the importance of contextualising design education.

Ingvild Digranes, Western Norway University of Applied Sciences and Liv Merete Nielsen, Oslo Metropolitan University, will discuss design in early years education and issues in creating national design curricula.

Any DRS PedSIG member is welcome to attend and previous events have led to some very engaging and in-depth conversations. 

You can find the recordings of the past presentations and discussions here

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions of what else we could do or what other topics and areas people would be interested in hearing about then (or if you want to get involved) then please just let us know (derek.jones@open.ac.uk). 

Looking forward to seeing you then!

About the series

The global and local challenges we all face as design educators have asked difficult questions about where, when and how we engage in teaching. Yet other events have posed even harder questions around who is represented / included in, and what the purpose of, design education is in contemporary society. 

In parallel to the contextual challenges, several initiatives have begun to explore the future of design education, such as the Design Declaration Summit held last year and, more recently, the Future of Design Education project, which proposes a more structured and explicit approach. PedSIG have been actively involved in many of these initiatives reflecting the views of members gathered through the PedSIG conferences, Learn X Design series.

Given the relevance and importance of this subject, DRS Pedagogy SIG are arranging a series of events to explore our collective ideas and thoughts on ‘Futures of Design Education’.

We are particularly keen to help raise awareness of the plurality of possible futures represented by our membership. PedSIG is an expert community of practice and research and our wisdom and ideas are valuable in surfacing many constructions of design education (epistemologies, ontologies, experiences, wisdoms).
