CN05: Design Education as a Catalyst for Change
Conveners: Dónal Padraic Holland, Ramia Mazé, Alex Milton, Ingrid Mulder & Cristiano Storni
This Conversation aims to explore the relationships between design education, design practice, and social change. To achieve this aim, the Conversation will bring educators and researchers from a variety of disciplines together to foster new exchanges and collaborations, allowing us to better explore questions about what it is that we learn when we learn to design, why that is, and what impact that has on our societies. During the Conversation, audience members will work in groups to create “prototype” research articles responding to themes and provocations proposed by the convenors.
