Futures of Design Education

The Autumn 2020 DRS PedSIG Meeting will focus on the topic "Futures of Design Education".

Date: 29 October 2020 

Time: 12:00 UCT/GMT  

Where: DRS SIG Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88650778461 

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, we plan to hold a DRS Pedagogy SIG event to explore our shared and diverse 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). 

Further details on the even format will follow.
