October 11, 2010 at 4:10 pm Leave a comment

The AIGA conference on education and design just ended. Hosted by NC State’s Graphic Design program, it became to be the start point for a serious redefinition of the Designer’s practice. Some of the speakers and participants included: John Thackara [Doors of Perception, Social Economies and Sustainability], Dori Tunstall [Swinburne University, Design Anthropologist], Rick Robinson [E-Lab, Sapient, Continuum– Collaboration], Sharon Poggenpohl [Ex IIT, Hong Kong Poytechnic, DEsign Integrations and a Design Research culture from scratch], Shelley Evenson [Ex Carnegie Mellon, now Microsoft Social – Service Design], David Small [MIT Media Lab, now Small Design Firm], and so many more. We will be talking about each one of the lectures and the discussion groups that were held over DESIGN EDUCATION and the way to re-frame it. EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT DESIGN THINKING! SO HOW SHOULD WE, AS EDUCATORS ADDRESS THIS NEW CONTEXTS? [Service and Systems Design, Social Economies, Research, Shifting Paradigms, Collaboration and Interdisciplinary work].
